Sometime, hopefully in 2-3 years, I will have earned a degree in writing. Which will be fabulous, it is what I love to do. As of yet, however, I have written little in the way of fiction. And for my degree I will have to write a boatload of fiction. So, to slowly work my way into the world of made up stories I am going to attempt the challenge at nanowrimo.com, or as I like to call it sodogotowodogboho. Essentially it is an event in the month of November where you attempt to write 50,000 words and call it a novel. I am going to try this because I’d like to shun the people in my life for a four week span this fall. I am not saying I will finish it and I am not saying if I do I will ever let anyone read it ever. But I am going to try. And if I do finish it I will be able to say I wrote a novel. Whee!

Good luck! That sounds hard. The extent of my fiction writing will be movie scripts, way more white space in those.
Come check out Saturday Morning Central on Halloween day, that’s when version 2.0 goes live!
Will do Tommy. Thanks!
You are “slowly” working your way into the world of fiction…by writing a NOVEL? You are far more ambitious than I…
And also, yes, WHEN you finish it, you WILL be letting someone read it. I think you know who that person is…
Hey, If I finish then this person better finish as well. I think this other person better get ambitious quick. 😉
you can do it!
I did it a few years ago, and there’s nothing like the pressure of a deadline to force your muse into overdrive.
If I recall correctly, there’s a place on their boards called “Dares”… try a few!
