So, November is here. The first thing that means is that elections have finally come and gone and Barack Obama is the President-elect of the United States of America. I for one am pretty pleased with America's choice. James was disappointed that his candidate never even got mentioned in all the press coverage of the election despite his spectacular mustache, but we're looking into therapy, so don't worry too much.
The other thing that November means, for me, is that I will be participating in National Novel Writing Month. What that means is that I'll be trying to write an entire novel before the month is over. The goal for all participants is to get to 50,000 words. I've chosen to work on a story that has been mulling around in my mind for a few years now, and I'm excited to have this impetus to really get going on it. I know you serious writers don't need these artificial deadlines and outside pressures, but one thing I've discovered about myself is that I need a due date. So for better or for worse, I will be writing throughout the month of November, and will hopefully have a finished, if not too polished, novel by the end of the month! Wish me luck.
