I’ve decided to join National Novel Writing Month…which was probably a very bad idea.
The whole idea is to write as much as possible during the month of November, and to get to 50,000 words by the end. You join a region, and compete against other areas. Normally, this wouldn’t be so bad, except that I am traveling for a week in the middle of the month…and have plenty of actual work to do!
Here it is, Nov. 4 and I’m only up to a little over 3,000 words. Things aren’t looking too good. I’m hoping that between JFK and San Francisco I’ll get to really crank up the word count.
I took the easy route, though, and decided to use this opportunity to start writing the follow-up to the book I’ve been working on for about a year now…and have been procrastinating on finishing for the last few months.
