How long will it take to write a novel? I welcomed this passion of carving a story out of thoughts some time ago but have never pursued it as diligently (well some days) as I have for the past 6 months.
My googling craze charges my creative slumber. The thoughts I vacuum up stir my imagination and soon I embark on another journey. (This is a time when a focus disorder is fruitful!)
Recently, while searching, I discovered a novel writing contest that spurs you to write 50,000 words in one month. (www.nanowrimo.org) I was instantly hooked. It has been well over 20 years since I first picked up a pen and jotted my musings down (many garbage bags full have subsequently been destroyed). I believe if I can wrap up my urge to get a rough draft accomplished, I could rest this uneasy spirit. Will this will be the trick to free me from this obsession?
I plan to post my progress and to keep me from shame, I do not anticipate failure. I frown at mistakes and firmly believe there are no errors in life, just journeys that have dead ends.
