If you’re unfamiliar with NaNoWriMo, it stands for National Novel Writing Month, a challenge to write a 50,000-word novel in November.
As is my habit, I stayed up to get started at midnight. Right now, I have just over 5,000 words written of my new novel, so I’m off to a good start.
This year, I’m writing a comedy detective story about a man who decides to become a private detective in the belief that he’ll get simple cases, like finding a lost pet, only to get mixed up in a case far beyond what he ever prepared for.
The idea has been in my head for a while now, so I’m excited to finally start writing and see where it leads.
My writing also has faltered a bit this year, because I’ve been trying to edit a horror novel that just won’t cooperate., so it feels good to be working on a brand new novel again.
Are you participating in NaNoWriMo this year? Let’s all give it our best and get some novels written!---
