Despite all of the craziness with work and my personal life, I still decided to sign up for NanoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) again this year. Yes, that means I'm going to attempt to write a novel in a month. That's 50,000 words in one month. Am I insane?
Last year I only made it to about 3500 words over the course of November, so I have much higher hopes for myself this year. The problem is--I still don't have a storyline, which is the same problem I had last year.
Joel C. Rosenberg came to our church this evening and was discussing scripture and how it relates to the End Times, in addition to telling us about his latest book The Twelfth Imam. I've always found this topic fascinating and his enthusiasm for sharingGod's Word brought back my own thirst for knowledge. He also mentioned how he came up with some of his topics, which I thought was pretty neat too. I went ahead and signed up for his newsletter, so maybe something that comes across will spark ideas for my story's plot.
Did you sign up for NanoWriMo this year? (It's not too late.) If you did, let me know and I'll put you on my buddy list. Maybe we can all succeed in our 50,000 word goal through the buddy system. Good luck and happy writing!
