This is my first time ever. I have to admit, I hadn’t even heard of it till a few months ago. Seems interesting…but not really a challenge for me.So I decided to do NaNoWriMo this year.
I can write 50,000 words in a day. I’m not bragging, I’m just saying. I’ve done it before, so I know it’s possible. Give me one good weekend of nothing but writing and it’s done.
Well this time I don’t’ even have an idea. I mean, I have HUNDREDS of possible ideas, but I have not selected one. I’m tossing a few around, and maybe I will outline a few and see which one has characters that “talk” to me. I want to go for something totally different for me. Or maybe not.
I wanted to connect the NaNoWriMo novel to the “Millionaire Playboy” novel (still untitled) but didn’t have a character that needed a new story told. I was thinking of a sequel to one of my unfinished novels, but that’s not cool. FINISH THE ORIGINAL FIRST!! Doh! I have to kick myself in the head sometimes for jumping the gun.
So I will start some fresh and new. It will come to me in the next 10 days. There’s a whole St. Louis NaNoWriMo group here in
that will meet up this Sunday and again on October 31. Wish I could be there, it seems interesting. I always like hearing other people ideas and their process. St. Louis
So until then, still finishing up the screenplay, but it’s hard to do without a computer, and so I wait.
