Let me update you on where I am write now…I mean right now. I’m writing a novel! Really!
I’m breaking all the writing rules we teach in class to do so. I have no prewriting. I have no plot structure lined up. I don’t know who my characters are until they show up in the story. I don’t actually plan to revise, and I’m not killing myself over perfect word choice.
It is National Novel Writing Month and I took the challenge: write 50,000 words in the month of Novemeber as a novel or beginning of a novel.
I’m at 4575 words. I’m not on track to successfully finish the challenge, but I am not going to let a little thing like that stop me. This is me writing…just writing.
What do you do just to do?
