The Art of Starting Something I Likely Won’t Finish

Because I'm an idiot and/or a glutton for punishment (you decide), I have decided to take a stab at the Nanowrimo thing (National Novel Writing Month). Your goal is to write a 50,000 word novel by the end of November.

I love the idea - and am hoping to use it to banish my fear of writing an entire "novel" or "book". Whenever the idea of writing something that long enters my mind, I generally feel very overwhelmed. How do I put it all together? What if I run out of ideas? How can you write an ENTIRE novel?? But I figure if Pamela Anderson can write one, it can't be all that hard.

I'd appreciate your thoughts on the story-in-progress which you can find at Shanna's Nanowrimo Novel - The Art of Dying. There's not much there yet, but keep checking back.

Just 49,609 words to go!

Halloween was a blast - I promise pictures and stories next post!
