I’ve taken (yet another) break from anything resembling semi-regular writing in order to participate in National Novel Writing Month. What’s this all about, you ask? GREAT because I’m going to explain some of this to you.
National Novel Writing Month is held every November from the 1st to the 31st where writers of all ages and skill levels get together and attempt to write a novel from scratch (50,000 words). This usually means no opening paragraphs, excerpts, or dialogue written ahead of time. You can however do world building, writing out character profiles, and research notes/outlines.
I’ve never completed a full 50k novel in a month…or any other manuscript in my time being alive and joining in on this borderline masochistic endeavor. That said, I’m doing my best…sort of. At the end of this month I’ll be writing at least ONE blog post for the end of the year (or so) and start gearing up for the next one. Until then, happy writing!
If you want to read more of my writings you can check out this fan fiction I’ve been writing since 2017 here.
