Virgin writer attempts insanity challenge: 50K words in 30 days!
That would be the headline of my personal story, this being my novice foray into the crazy world of NaNoWriMo. This will be my home page for the month of November instead of my usual blogroll. If you still want to see that stuff, click the “Normal Home” tab at the top. That’s the usual craziness that is me, not just this NaNo and NaBlo craziness for this, the month of a million moustaches.
Oh, and I should probably mention this is no pretty little romance novel. This is a horrible twisted tale of domestic abuse and violence, so not for the feint of heart. Profanity is minimal at this stage, but I rate all my entries with the tags: Rated F! and Rated S! if I have cursed within. Pretty self-explanatory, I think.
Because this is my first year and because I actually do want to be a published writer in my lifetime, I’ll be posting my story each day as I write it, hoping to hear feedback from anyone who cares to comment. Yes, that’s both a terrifying and exciting prospect.
I hope to get good feedback, of course! But this is fiction and I’m realistic – I know all firsts need big edits. In fact, I think I’ve already caught myself go from first to third and back to first person again. 🙂 But this is still my very first attempt, so maybe be a little gentle with me? 🙂
