b094c075c449e815b16b877d926a4c471 Today, November 1, is the first day of National Novel Writing Month. I have participated in this event four times before but have never finished. This is my year though, I can feel it!

So I have four half-finished, terrible, horrible, no good, really bad novels floating around. And today I started another one. In the past, I just sat down and remained seated until I had a good chunk of writing done, which could sometimes take forever. This time I tried to write in 30 minute chunks and it seemed to work better, I wrote 2,741 words today!

I wonder though, what makes me want to do this every year? What makes me think I have something to say that no one has heard before? Why do I want to commit myself to cramming 50k words into 30 days? What makes me think I am good enough to create something that anyone would be interested in? Ego, probably. Maybe.

If anyone would like to join me in this endeavor though, sign up at . I am Hlavallee on the nanowrimo site if you’d like a writing buddy.Wish me luck! Or email me if you have any writing secrets or advice 🙂
