National Novel Writing Month!
Writing a novel is not my purpose for trying to learn how to express myself and my thoughts into words by writing. I would love to consider myself a writer, but every time I try and call myself a writer I get writer’s block. So I have come up with this to say, “I consider myself a writer only by default: Because I am writing this and you are reading it, then I guess that makes me a writer.” Today will be the 701st day in a row that I have written something every day in my Windows Live Spaces site.
Although I thoroughly enjoy writing every day I have no desire at this time to write a novel. There are times when it is difficult for me to have something to say but I write anyway. The writers here at the Write Anything site have inspired me on many occasions with their articles and posts for me to do some writing of my own. For their inspiration I am sincerely grateful. I have written many Fiction Friday entries from the writing prompts that this sight provides. Yet just getting a 250 word count is a struggle for me to write on some days.
I will not be participating in the National Novel Writing Month this year because I don’t have the desire to write a novel or to writing 2,000 words per day needed to meet the challenge. If I should change my mind in the future and want to try my hand at writing a novel I wanted to keep in mind these steps from Karen to writing a novel:
National Novel Writing Month Workshop
- Find an idea write synopsis
- Point of View
- Constructing Scenes
- You can do it Good Luck!
I am posting this in my Windows Live Space site for future reference, and I’m also posting this at the Write Anything site for Say It On Saturday! I don’t think that I have missed posting something when they have had this feature available and I didn’t want to miss out on it today either. Are you going to be participating in the National Novel Writing Month on November 1, 2008? Are you going to join me today on Say It On Saturday?
Thanks for Listening,
