Yesterday marked the first day of National Novel Writing Month.
For those of you that have never heard of National Novel Writing Month, it’s a month long challenge in which you work toward completing a 50,000 word story — or start of a story.
I can say that I’m already off to a poor start as I recently started watching Grey’s Anatomy and I haven’t been able to unglue myself from the television. My Netflix binging kept me from getting in any real writing, so I’m banking on catching up and hopefully getting ahead over the weekend.
This year, my focus is on a novel I started last year. If I complete 50,000 words, then great. If I complete the story and can go back in December for edits, even better!
Currently, I’m on track to finish… eventually. But! If I can get sucked back into the writing process and fall back into my little world of writing, than I feel like maybe I might have an actual novel. Maybe not a great one, but there will be a story from start to end.
