NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, starts November 1st. I've never done NaNo before, although I did FAWM (February Album Writing Month) this year for the first time. Since I need to write an album really fast this year for the Harlequin American Romance editor pitch challenge, I took the plunge. At first, I was worried that I'd already written 500 words on the story I intend to write. Then I read what I'd written. Yecccchhhh! Not a problem. I'll scrap that, keep the original idea, and start over from scratch! Actually, it wasn't bad, but it was a first effort, and it shows. The characters and emotions are good. I don't need some of the wording and phrases I had before.
So, it's off to the drawing board tomorrow to create this book from scratch! Look out November. By the grace of God, here I come!
