"The fear of writing badly, of revealing something you would rather keep hidden, of losing the good opinion of the world, of violating your own high standards, or of discovering something about yourself that you would just as soon not know-those are just a few of the phantoms scary enough to make the writer wonder if there might be a job available washing skyscraper windows." Francine Prose, Reading Like A Writer
I've always wanted to write. Wanted is not really the right word, more like I felt I had to write. Dawn shared this link on facebook and I signed up to write a novel of 50,000 words in 30 days! What was I thinking? I guess this is one way to find out if I have what it takes! I do not know what I will write about. I will be spending the next two weeks obsessing about it. I woke up many times last night to think about it. I do most of my writing in my head right after and before I sleep. If only I could write those things down.
I think I need to schedule blog posts for all of November! I don't plan to neglect my blog, but I do intend to meet my writing goal.
Anyone else crazy enough to try this? Let me know!
