My Halloween Scare: I’m signed up for National Novel Writing Month. Yep. Gonna try to write 1667 words a day all November.
I’m the greatest American writer ever, I just don’t know it yet…..nah.
My angel whispered it’s time to get those characters out of my head and onto paper….maybe.
I just want to see if I can do it….very likely.
It’s been a year since I finished Genealogy Online 8th Edition and I’m itching to be writing creatively again….getting closer.
I want “to allow my innate gifts to come to the surface, unmolested by self-doubt, self-criticism, and other acts of self-bullying” for 30 days….I think that’s it. That phrase is from the contract you make with yourself to participate in NaNoWriMo. It really caught me, because that sounds like writer heaven.
Another part of the contract is that one is to “brag” about starting the novel, to make yourself accountable to the whole world. Bragging isn’t my long suit, so this post will have to count.
Prayers for success in this endeavor gratefully accepted!
I’m also going to participate in the Geneablogger’s Cookbook. I have an old cigar box full of Mimi’s recipes….and of course food will play a prominent part in my new novel that starts tomorrow. So it dovetails nicely.
