National Novel Writing Month starts on Nov 1 – get yer first draft there
Really, put that mind-f*ck critic in yer head away and just blast late into the night on the keyboard
Your novel is already there: its not about thinking it up, its getting it down
You can come back to this goal to edit and polish
Why don’t don’t you join us over on NaNoWriMo 2011 ??
Jan will be my NaNoWriMo, why not?
I started writing at 17, then admitted I wanted to be a writer at 20. I thought I’d finish my first novel by 21. I now have 3 novels and 2 screenplays in various stages of (in)completion, all in binders next to my desk. On my last birthday, I thought it a nice reminder that I should get on with it and get writing before I turned 40. I now have 3 mos left. Just looking for a draft. Should be easy, right? I’ve been thinking about the same story for 20 years.
