What a Novel idea!

Since November is National Novel writing month, I decided that I would give it a try. Why not? I like to write, and what a great thing to accomplish. The challenge is to write 50,000 words by the 30th of November. I think I can do it. If not at least I will have tried. The site encourages you to write for quantity rather than quality. You can always go back and edit. At some point I will put up what I have, but for now you will have to wonder.

My novel will be borrowing stories from here and will Chronicle my life. I think its semi-interesting enough and I can make a story. My starting point is my senior year of college. We will see if I can make a book on that. If you have any suggestions I would appreciate them. Also, I need a title. The working one is "It Should Have Been Easy".

hmmmm. Cool idea. I will give a novel a shot. Lets keep each other accountable for it though. I quickly did 700 words. I figure 700 or so twice a day.

Stephen King in his book "on writing: memiors of the trade" Says 1000 words a day is a good number. I have done that twice. I won't commit to writing a novel though... because if I do... I won't LOL. Good luck sista!

We need to make it a competition. That is the only way I will keep up. How many words are you up to?

At present I have worked myself up to zero words.
