National Novel Writing Month

NaNoWriMo approaches (like a freight train), and I am going to participate for the first time.  There is a comic sci-fi novel that has been tickling my brain for years.  The tentative title is “Luck”, and I hope that doesn’t jinx it.  Well, the time to commit it to paper is here(ish – actually in two more days).

All of this is in service of becoming a more productive writer.

It’s strange.  When I was teaching, writing was an escape.  I looked forward to the time I could steal from other things to finish my first novel.  Now that I’m retired and have a lot of free time writing seems more like a chore.  The human brain (or at least my brain) is very odd.

I will post updates in November.  Good luck to all writers participating in this creative marathon.  50,000 words or bust!
