In four days I will begin a challenge that both thrills and terrifies me. I will be writing a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. Yup. I’ve officially gone crazy.
I found Nanowrimo several months ago and haven’t been able to get it out of my mind since. I’ve never written a novel. I’ve never even written a short story. And I do not yet have a plot. But, I do love to write. And I have officially signed up, so write I will.
I have been wanting to write professionally for quite some time now, but life and doubts and fears have continually distracted me. With Nanowrimo, I will be writing on a crazy short schedule, but, I am giving myself permission to throw all perfection out the window. My goal with this is not to write some brilliant story. Far from it. I simply want to jump start my creativity. To practice putting words to paper…or at least to computer screen. And I want to see if I can actually write 50,000 coherent words in story form.
So, what do you think? Have I totally lost my mind? Any good plot ideas?
