Writing a novel in a month… dare I?

Thanks to a WordPress blog, National Novel writing month has been drawn to my attention…

I’ve read about it before but never more than vaguely contemplated doing it. However, having decided that ‘Loving Judah’ will be published on October 31st, maybe I should set myself a new challenge for November. I have decided my next published book will be ‘Night Vision’… but that comes from my stable of unpublished but completed work. Maybe I should actually start to write creatively again rather than editing and refining something I already have?

I have plenty of ideas… I  even have three characters, brothers, actually… I have been practising my writing here on the blog since March, and before that 750 words, which is like a private blog to yourself  but with an aspiration of writing those seven hundred and fifty words every day for a month!

750 words earns you badges!

I did it for about a year – not completing every month, but it was a terrific inspiration and really got me back into writing with verve again after a couple of years of labouring in the shadows while my day job and family commitments were to the fore.

Now… how about a new challenge for myself… how about it? I wonder if I could… surely it would be fun… surely it would be worth trying? Nothing ventured, nothing gained and a load of other clichés?

I’ll let you know tomorrow!
