|November 1st-30st, "The world needs your novel"|
But I live in Dallas. The days have only just begun to cool off enough that I can walk my dogs even after 9am and not have to worry about any of us suffering from heat exhaustion for the remainder of the long day.
The beginning of Fall is my favorite time of the year. For sure. Crisp cool days, cooler nights, falling leaves, the occasional downpour, sweaters and Uggs, and holidays in our near future.... Ah! I LOVE IT.
However, I also love a good challenge.
But writing a novel... in a month? I don't think so. I'm not really sure I've got a novel in me.
But I'm pretty sure I've got a few decent short stories. And maybe even a brief memoir. And most definitely, more consistent blog posts!
My favorite time of the year might just be the perfect time to get myself back into a regular writing practice. These days, writing has been on the back burner, while jewelry making has taken center stage. But I love to write! And I think it helps my jumbled mind to do it regularly.
So on these beautiful Fall days of November, I will be writing about an hour a day. If it's a rainy day, or a little chilly, I'll put on a pot of tea and go nuts with the writing (probably while eating nuts)! Or, if it's sunny and beautiful outside, I can take it to the streets-- or I can even write in my hammock if I feel it necessary!
There's a nice little website here where you can get tips, support, track your progess, and connect with other writers online if you want. I'll be one of them.
The world needs our novels, or short stories, or whatever...
