So, just in case you did not know, this is National Novel Writing Month.
Nine days left to finish my 50,00 word novel.
Even if I do not make the cut and have it done in time I still regard it as a most valuable experience. I have learned how to crank out the words even when I am not in the mood. That was perhaps the bigger problem with getting writing done – or getting anything done – sometimes you have to push the truck down the road for a while at great effort, then pop the clutch to get things going.
I found that with writing, much like other things in my life, once I got the machine going, I found myself enjoying what I had only shortly before dreaded.
Next year maybe you can join and write your first novel and maybe I will as well.
Perhaps it will be my second.
