Today marks the first day of National Novel Writing Month. It’s the event that taught me to write drunk, revise sober. I started another new first draft, an alternate history story that has been percolating for a while, but is not fully developed. This is a month to explore my idea unfettered with expectations of making it perfect, editing and revising as I go. My goal is to write 50,000 words in a month. It’s the fifth year I’m participating in NaNoWriMo, and I’m filled with excitement over creating another first draft to mould into a novel. Wish me luck!
Once I can figure out how to post a widget on here with a graph of my progress, I’ll add it to this blog. That way it will be easy for you to follow my progress.
Best to you,
