Two hopes for NaNoWriMo

I think I’ll be participating in NaNoWriMo, a writing challenge to write a novel of 50,000 words in 30 days.

I was pretty anxious about it, but then I remembered a story concept I’ve had for, like 13 years.  Not a whole story, kind of an adaptation of another idea, but no one is writing it, it won’t write itself, and I want to read it!

1. I hope that I’ll be more creative.  Rather, I’ll be more in touch with the creative part of me.  I think everyone has a creative vein, if you will, and that is a source of great joy and motivation.  I’ve noticed that when I’m feeling creative and creating things, I don’t feel stuck or flat. I feel dynamic and very much alive.

2. I hope it’s a good story.  I don’t mean publishable, but a good story.  There are a couple of things I’d written at different times, like in college, that I read over now and I think are a riot.  Great dialogue and character development (IMHO).  I look at it now and think to myself: “Dang.  Remember when you did this?  I don’t think I could now, but this is fun.”

I’ll be posting from it a time or two, I’m sure, to get your feedback and suggestions.  Thanks for reading!


Okay, your turn.
