November is National Novel Writing Month. Last year, I read an article about a 7th grade teacher in Colleyville, Texas who presented the idea of writing a novel to her students. And they did it and they kept writing, some students exceeded the 50,000 word requirement and just kept on writing. So I thought, if 7th graders can do it, surely, I can do it.
I am going to attempt to write more than just personal scribbles. I'm going to write a novel. Eek!
Luckily, this movement is concerned with quantity and not quality. As long as I submit 50,000 words by midnight Nov. 30th, I can call myself a novelist. This is just the jump-start I need to get some writing into gear and fulfill one of those things on my bucket list. I never said it needed to be published...it just says WRITE A NOVEL.
So for those of you who have secret dreams of writing novels, join me in my quest to complete 50,000 words in 3o days! It's only 1,666 words a day!
