I just discovered the most exciting challenge! National Novel Writing Month = 50,000 words written in November. Yes, I work about 60 hours a week, but, I get a week off in November, and always have my evenings. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can. This quote helps:
“Because of the limited writing window, the ONLY thing that matters in NaNoWriMo is output. It’s all about quantity, not quality. This approach forces you to lower your expectations, take risks, and write on the fly. Make no mistake: You will be writing a lot of crap.”
Wow. I’m excited. Really excited. I’m seriously like a little kid right now. I think I must be destined to a life as a hermit by how exciting this challenge is to me. Now I have the next three days to pick my story idea. To restart one of my various previous book-writing attempts, or to start completely anew, that is the question!
