A few days ago some friends told me about National Novel Writing Month.
People from all over the world take the month of November to write a 50,000 word novel.
The idea intrigued me. I already had an idea for a novel, albeit a heavily autobiographical one. I already had a few characters in my head. Why not go for it? What was stopping me?
Fear. Fear of Failure. Fear of Success. I'm tired of being Afraid. I'm going for it.
So, here I am only 4,000 words into my novel when I should be half way there.
But I'm not giving up. I work best under pressure, always have.
You'll hear from me along the way, as I curse myself for ever telling anyone I was going to do this.
Gotta go - I have writing to do and none of this will go toward my word count!
