Into the fray
Since so many others are doing it, I decided today, partly out of sheer boredom at work, to jump on the NaNoWriMo bandwagon. The idea is I'm supposed to churn out a piece of work, at least 50,000 words (which supposedly qualifies as a "short novel") by the end of November. I can't start actually writing until tonight at midnight, which isn't going to happen because I will be in bed then. But it will start shortly thereafter.
I'm actually pretty excited about this. Sure, I have a full-time job now (when the partner I work for has things for me to do, anyway), but I've always thought I'd like to write a book, and this seems to be a good way to motivate me. The working title of my novel is The Magical-tastic Turkey. It doesn't have a plot yet, or even a genre. But I like the name. It's kind of fun and seasonal and random. ... or is it?
He he he.
