My mom wants to write a novel in the month of November because of Nation Novel Writing Month. She is already working on a blog story and another novel, but the rules say you must start a new work and get 50,000 + words written (typed) before December.
I have never considered myself a writer. A reader, yes. Writing has never been enjoyable or easy for me. It doesn't help that I put up my own stumbling blocks by reminding myself of the teachers who told me I couldn't write. I force myself to write so I don't become illiterate.
Mom likes to do things with others and I am not such a bad audience. I like to be "designated reader" for her from time to time. I like to think I can come up with fun plots or characters, even if I can't actually write the story. Well NO MORE OF THAT! I have written 6000 words this month (a miracle?) and I am enjoying most of it. I actually downright LIKE our story and it is fun to see it grow.
We may or may not try to publish, but I can almost guarantee it will be available to read in the future- either in book or blog form. So if you like "chick lit" you might want to watch out for our story!
