Well, I have taken the plunge and have signed up for National Novel Writing Month which begins on 1st November.
I am now asking myself if I have gone insane!
Why I hear you ask?
Well here is a list :-
- I have 2 young children
- I work all day
- I have 1 husband
- I have 1 house to run
- I have 1 puppy
- I have no time
So, what was I thinking? Well, I have been wanting to write my book for a long time, I know like millions of others, I am screaming “I know I have at least one good book in me!”. Instead, I have just been researching for what seems like a mini lifetime, so I thought if I do NaNoWrimo, even if I did not reach the 50,000 words that are needed between November 1st – 30th, at least I will have started it!
I have spent the last week planning and trying to get some sort of plot going for my project and thus far I am looking forward to it, ask me again this time next week, or the week after when I am tearing my hair out, the kids have no clean knickers, I am late for work, my husband has left, as well as the puppy, the house is in disarray and I am bald!
So, with that in mind, I am now eagerly waiting in anticipation at the starting block, I do not know whether I will be able to commit to the word count, I figure if I do 2,000 words a day, I can take at least 1 day off a week!
So wish me luck fellow NaNoWrimoers. Have you signed up?
