So in March, I wasn’t thinking about November, until it got closer and I realized it was the perfect opportunity to participate from start to finish in National Novel Writing Month!
This past summer I came up with an idea for a new book – a great heroine who is just as real as we are, maybe a little of myself, someone with dreams and goals and values that she is willing to sacrifice anything for just to be happy.
With only an idea, I spend pretty much every day writing around 1,600 words to create a book that I plan to submit for publishing in the near future. It was a lot harder than I imagined – who knew typing 215 pages on a typewriter would be such an finger exercise. And made me greatly appreciate this computer I currently type on that will correct all my misspellings.
Now it’s time to start Draft #2 … and I’m looking forward to what I might come up with in 2015 for NaNoWriMo!
