One Month, One Pencil, One Novel...

Yes, November is THE month. The National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. Thousands upon thousands of otherwise normal, about average, people take on the commitment to write a 50,000 word novel in one, single month. Crazy, right? Yeah, I know. I love it.

OK, I'm not really going to use a pencil. Although I usually write my first drafts of my articles on paper (with a pen, not a pencil...I love crossing out, not erasing), the fact that I've got to bang out 50,000 words in four weeks probably means I'll need to go straight to the ol' MacBook this time.

Yes, it's going to be a mystery/suspense novel and yes, I've got a sorta, kinda plot, or maybe an outline, or possibly a organized thought in my head, though it's VERY sketchy. Veeeeerrrrry sketchy.

Check out my progress

Wish me luck. I'll need it.
