It’s almost October – which means we’re one month from November and National Novel Writing Month.
And I am desperate to start my new project.
Can I wait until November? Will this burning need to get words on the page and finish the story wait?
I really do not know.
I’ve got a bunch of friends who want me to do the challenge with them, and yeah, it would be fun, but I don’t need the challenge to write – I know I am more than capable of getting that many words out in around that much time when I am in my normal writing state. I know that when I’m working on a project I’m writing every day until it’s done (other than for really good reasons). So it’s not like I need the incentive, but there is something joyous about writing with a bunch of other people.
Is that enough to prevent me from starting this next novel before November? I guess we’ll see. I have plenty of things that could distract me from it, but when it comes down to it I can already feel those first paragraphs building in my mind. I can vividly remember the end of the last novel and I know what comes next – despite the fact that it’s been about 10 1/2 months since I finished it and I haven’t looked at it since.
It’s calling to me, and the intensity of that call is only going to build. These characters are chomping at the bit to get in the limelight again….
Ah well, time will tell 😉 And if I can’t wait, then sorry friends! lol I’ll still be writing in November, even if it’s not the month I started the novel in 😉
