So I decided to take the plunge.
I am taking up the challenge to write a 50,000-word novel in one month, per NaNoWriMo: National Novel Writer’s Month.
Are any of you doing NaNoWriMo?
I started out amazing…plopping down about 2,000-3,000 words a day.
Here’s my premise: I want to write a good, clean (aka sans profanity, eye-shutting violence against women/children, and mentioning of naked body parts) novel that a mom can read and then pass down to her teenage daughter, like my mom used to do.
Mom introduced to me to my favorite novelist of all time: Victoria Holt.
Dear Readers, I am no Victoria Holt.
But I do try.
Do you do to procrastinate at an impending deadline?
My goal is to write a suspense novel, my favorite genre. So I do say no violence against women/children…I just mean that no one is going to die horribly at the hands of a violent offender. But I’d never kill off a child. I’m a mom…I just could never do that.
Anyway, I’m babbling just a little bit. And I’m procrastinating even more.
Because I’m halfway through the novel, and this is hard!!! I can’t figure out what happens next.
Also, I’m procrastinating against freelance writing assignments that are due tomorrow!
But I had to do my Wednesday blog, right?
I may just keep writing this blog.
