Daily Words: NaNoWriMo (aka, ‘Screw It, Let’s Do Something!’)
Going to try and write a novel with everyone else, because I’m feeling like I’ve been pretty damned lazy when it comes to writing lately. Also, I had the real pleasure to hear Rob Gerry’s Ed at Eleven (Suite from the Motion Picture) performed at the University of New Hampshire recently, and it was based off this old idea we came up with about a guy who loves breaking into places no one else would ever want to go. It got me thinking about the story again, and so I’m going to give it a try and see if I can’t flesh out some of the ideas that were in the old screenplay I wrote. And it will be nice to deal with characters who don’t live in Croats Corner for a change.
Yes, yes–I know this counts officially as procrastination. I don’t plan to give up my other novel, but I like the thought of staggering them a bit, so I always have something to edit later. And, whatever, anyway! I’m going to be writing again, so there.
The goal is 50,000 words by November 30. That’s perfect for this project, which was never going to be anything more than a novella, anyway.
Now … to get the first pages down …
Where to begin?
