National Novel Writing Month starts today -- one novel, 50000 words in 30 days. And one of my buddies has already written 2500 words! I've written 25. Yep, that's it.
At the last minute, I decided to write a different novel than the one I planned -- this one is the second of a trilogy and is a romantic thriller dealing with Veteran homelessness and unemployment. But I'm determined. Vague plotline is done. Working on outline and will have first scene done before midnight. Then maybe I can knock out the second right after midnight.
Either way, I'll finish this one in 30 days. So, happy writing and good luck to the 100K+ other writers out there trying to accomplish the same thing!
Oh, and for my novel this month I'm collecting donations for the VFW and a little elementary school in Tennessee. If I don't finish the novel, I match the funds. If I do, I'll end up matching anyway but the competition is motivating. Those who donate win the chance at a NYTimes Bestseller or an Amazon Kindle so please play along.
