There's no better decision than an ill advised and poorly thought out decision. So here's mine....
For the first time in nearly ten years, I'll be participating in National Novel Writing Month. 50,000 words in 30 days - a shortish novel, but a novel nonetheless. I completed my first novel in 2006, if I remember correctly. It languished on an external hard drive for years before I gave it a bit of a makeover and a spiffy cover. It's now for sale on Amazon as an ebook under my erotica pen name, and it's my best selling title.
Don't be too impressed by that - it makes about enough money per month for one nice dinner out, or a couple of mediocre ones, but it's mine and people continue to buy it. If any of my writer friends are reading this, I challenge you to try it, too.
Just like my Universal Life Church ordination means that I can call myself Reverend, thanks to NaNoWriMo, I can also lay claim to being a published novelist.
And so can you!Since I haven't played with my cameras much this year, and the last thing I need to do is obsess about food, I guess, for the next thirty days, at least, that this will be a writing blog. I'll track my progress to 50K, and I hope some of you will take a crack at it, too.
Oh, and if you want to add me as a writing buddy, my username on NaNo is Poisonpen.
