N is for Novel writing in November
Okay, so now that I’m really getting into this blogging thing, I’ve decided to do one for my book. I have thought about this for a long time, but I found something that I think will help me. It’s called NaNoWriMo. I will be writing my novel of at least 50,000 words in one month. It’s a little scary, but this kind of pressure may be the only way for me to get it done. I am the procrastinating type. All during Nov. I will be writing my novel. I can sign up on Oct first, so I will be starting another blog (you think I’m a little obsessed with this blogging thing?) and setting it up for my novel. Hopefully it won’t interfere with school stuff to much. I expect having a few late nights with this thing, and I can prepare by writing some everyday and getting into the habit. I’m really excited! and a little scared, but I think it will be a good experience. So far the hardest part is getting that first draft down. Every time I start writing I feel incompetent and want to do more research. The research is important too because my novel is historically based and I need to know about the daily life in the early 20’s. My creative mind gets impatient with all of that research and wants to get the story out. After that first draft is done finishing it up shouldn’t be to hard. If your interested keep your eyes out for my novel blog in October and November.
