So. NaMoWrimo.

As my wife gently pointed out, if one wishes to be a novelist, one must actually have novels to hand. So we’ll give it a shot.  On my terms, though; I’m not planning to make a big deal out of it here, I’m not going to get all misty-eyed mystical on the subject, this is all about buckling down and working.

And I refuse to research a damned thing.  If real world people or organizations don’t in fact act in the way that I’ll be writing them, well, they should change that immediately.

    Next you’ll be telling me I can’t demand complete strangers address me with ridiculous titles.
    What’s the world coming to when you can’t mess with salesmen?

    Think of it this way: you already get paid to write. You’ve got extra ammunition to shoot down the fears of inadequacy. 🙂

    Yeah, I’m going to make a run at it this year.
    I need to get over the fact that I’m sure everything sucks around Chapter 10 and keep plugging away.

    I think you have the proper spirit of the event: That is, to just get the words of the story out there, to be edited down later.

    I’ve never been verbose enough for the full goal, but I’ve churned out the bones of a decent short or two.

    If my life were just a *scosh* more orderly … I’d have my second novel done now.

    As it is, I mostly use my creative writing skills on corporate email. Gotta get the phrasing *just* right …
