Novels dont’ kill . . .

the thought that you can write a coherent, cohesive novel in 30 days might just kill you, though. Or not. The people that started this Nano challenge were young, childless and fairly free of responsibilities.  I have to believe that is the only reason that out of all the months in the year, they picked November.  GAH! 

Still, I’ve done this every year since 2006. I had only one year where I simply could not get it done. Most of the other years, I’ve finished but would sooner gnaw off my own hand than let anyone read.  I think I have had three or four Nano novels that I’ve let others read. And, those were not good, but at least there was a beginning,  middle and end. This year, it appears I’ll get it done, but it won’t really be done. I’ve taken on too much and I’m not seeing anyway of getting it done in 50,000 words.  I will plug on and see what happens – sadly, I’m still kind of waiting for a full plot to pop out at me. Okay, I just needed a break.  Now I’m back to work.
