Less than one day from now literally hundreds of thousands of people will sit down to their word processors, paper tablets and perhaps some even at old fashioned typewriters. Their purpose will be to get 50000 words on paper that resemble a novel of some form. Most of these creations will be ugly and malformed pieces of literature. The will however be loved and adored by their creators for one simple fact – they will be done. That age-old bucket list item of ‘write a novel’ will be crossed off.
For myself I am ready for this once more into the breach epic that has been part of my life since 2006. I won last year and finished my Novel “Lair of the Moon lizard King” and claimed my title for the first time as NaNoWriMo winner.” I did however not achieve one of my goals which to use the month to create a regular habit of writing on a book each day. I hope to rectify that this year by using November to establish that habit.
My situation as usual is to set the stage place my characters on it and create a situation and see how it plays out. It sometimes creates more interesting plot twists than having everything laid out. It will be interesting to be sure putting my pub characters in a novel. This should make some thing go faster but other things might go slower because I don’t want things to completely the same.
Well nothing left to do but to wait till midnight and start writing. Ready…Set…
