inktober has just ended
fresh on my success and
still on the high
of having completed
i have decided to take on a second challenge…
but this one will be much more difficult, i suspect.
national novel writing month.
50, 000 words in one month…
50, 000 consecutive words…enough words to
form a novel should someone want to do that…
what do i want?
i want to force myself to finish something.
just one thing.
just finish one thing.
so…this appealed to me…
because i need accountability.
i have decided to work on the story that
i have been working on for a while now…
about bernadine and why she should never, ever
go into the woods across the street.
i am going to post it here on my blog
as i write it…that’s my accountability…
and i am hoping that some brave soul
may actually read it which will make me
feel accountable to someone
other than me
cause lets face it,
i’m a bit of a softie and
will listen to any sad-sack excuse
i try to offer myself for why i can’t write today.
but if someone else is reading it…
well…that’s a different story.
and if YOU are the someone else reading it,
please bear in mind that this is a rough draft
with no editing…
(but….i hope you like it anyway).
ok. HERE WE GO!
(and already, i’m cheating a little cause what i am going to share
today was written a long time ago…
but that doesn’t mean i didn’t write something new today…
it just means
you can’t read it yet…heh).
