So yes, I have thought about writing a novel. And I have virtually completed a book of some kind in this blog of mine over the past 3 months. But what about the world of serious writing?
Writing class did some very important things for me – it made me realize that I love this stuff! I’m still not sure if I’m good at it but that’s only marginally important. If I love it I should do it no?
Enter NaNoWriMo. A competition to write 50,000 words before the end of November, National Novel Writing Month. All I’d have to do to be a winner is write. And I’d have to start today.
But then doubt sets in – I’m exhausted. I have a week’s vacation, should I be busting myself over this? My computer needs to be replaced before I can expect to do much more than social network on it. There’s a full plate of obligations set before me and I have no idea how I’m going to meet it.
So NaNoWriMo… I will think on you for one more day. By tomorrow I’ll know if I’m crazy enough to try it or not.
Mind you… it’s only 1,666 a day… 1,724 if I start tomorrow…
What do you think?
