This year’s NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is underway, but yours truly won’t be participating. I’ve made enough attempts at writing novels on my own to know that this challenge is still beyond me. Short stories I can do when the muse strikes me upside the head, but a full-length novel is still beyond my reach.
Which isn’t to say that I’m not keeping my mind open to the possibility. I often will sit and try to think of novel-length ideas and once I nail one down I’ll see what I can do to actually develop it, but I won’t be setting any deadlines anytime soon until I start getting better ideas.
Still, good luck to those of you who are participating and I look forward to reading your works when you are done.
