Yes, November is National Novel Writing Month (we seem to have a badge!) We are challenged–all of us, even you–to write an ENTIRE novel during the month. It doesn’t have to be a good novel. It’s written but not edited–just pure writing from the beginning to the end. I’ve challenged myself to do that. Leaped out of bed this morning, sat down at the computer. I have to confess, I did eat breakfast, drank coffee while petting the kitties, and checked email first but, after that, I started writing. then I decided I liked the other story better and wrote a few lines on that. Then I went to the post office and came home for a nap. All in all, I accomlished very little but I wrote a few sentences which makes me happy.
But, in the midst of all the excitement and challenge, I forgot about the blog! So, here it is. If you want to write a novel, try NaNoWriMo.
THE WEDDING PLANNERS OF BUTTERNUT CREEK comes out Tuesday. Release day of a novel NEVER gets old. I’m filled with fear–what if everyone hates it? What if my editor tells me they are not paying me the rest of the advance because it’s so bad? What if my writing friends star throwing books at me? On the other hand, what if people do like Hannah’s romance and Adam’s wedding? Writing is a risk and a gamble. And RT said, “”An utter delight.” That means something, right?
I’ll be blogging several times–guess blogging–next week. I’ll put a link on this blog so you can visit them.
Would you please hold my hand until Tuesdady? I would appreicat that. A “there,there” and a soft pat-pat would also be appreciated.
