If you don't hear from me for awhile, it's because I signed up for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).  The gist is that I just write, for two+ hours a day, not worrying about grammar, wording, etc... to get a first draft of a novel written in one month, even if it is really shitty.  The premise is that I then spend the next eleven months fleshing it out and cleaning it up.

The problem is that what I enjoy about writing is the crafting of a well worded sentence.  So this may go badly wrong, or it may give me the outline of my next novel.

We'll see how it goes...

For anyone interested, the website is  Come join me and my friend, Dustin as we pursue writing the Great American Novel.


  1. I'm doing Nanowrimo too! This is my fifth year and fifth novel. The one that is becoming a book was from 2010, novel 3. Good luck to you!

  2. Jeannie, were you able to do 50K words in a month? I started out pretty strong, but I had several scenes in my head just waiting to be put on paper. Now I'm floundering.
