Starting November 1st it is the National Novel Writing Month. The idea behind it is to write 50,000 words in one month. I am attempting it this year for the first time. You have to start a novel from scratch and so I will begin a new one. It won’t have anything to do with things I have written before because you aren’t supposed to be started already. In writing that much in a short amount of time is supposed to free you from the worry of ‘not writing badly’. Because you will. Write badly. But. . . there may be moments of greatness, and there may be something to work with at the end of the month. I’m not sure how much I will accomplish with a new baby (and three other kids) and two other jobs, but I can forever be finding excuses or I can do it and try. Besides, I think my meds are kicking in and I feel like I can accomplish something ;).
