Now Here's Something REALLY Scary...
Thanks to newly discovered (by me) blogger Queen Mum, I have learned about something that really excites and scares me: NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. The idea is to commit to writing 50,000 words of a novel-- good, bad or indifferent, serious or silly, any genre at all-- and to do so in a limited time, November 1 through 30.
God help me, I'm going to do it.
I wrote yesterday about my stop-and-start attempts at artistic expression. I have been thinking about writing a novel for approximately 35 of my 45 years.
This is it.
So.... dear blogiverse, I'm not sure how that will impact blogifying over the next 30 days. It is not my attempt to abandon it. This blog has a very different thrust than writing fiction. But my entries may well be shorter and further apart, if I am trying to crank out the equivalent of one slightly short sermon per day (see September 17, 24 and October 8 for typical sermons of mine)!
Yikes. Maybe I won't do this.
No. I will. I am. No time like the present.
