I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was in grade school. I’m pretty good at starting stories and creating backgrounds and characters, but I’ve rarely ever finished a story.
One of the few writing projects I’ve ever completed was a children’s play when I was in high school. My favorite English teach asked me to write one for the drama club’s annual children’s play for the following school tyear. I had the entire summer break to do the play and I remember spending a panicked two weeks towards the end of the summer cranking through it.
So with all the twittering from friends about National Novel Writing Month, I decided to see if this provides me with the same kind of motivation. Of course November is a busy month already between family, holidays starting, and all of the big games coming out. I’m not sure I’ll hit the 50k mark, but I wanted to at least try and see what I get out of it.
