Let's Do This......Again...But for Real This Time...Seriously.

It's November, which means I'm thinking about NaNoWriMo again.

If you've never heard of such a thing, let me explain. It's National Novel Writing Month. It's a challenge to write a novel is just a month. To be more percise, it's a challenge to write 50,000 words in a month.

For about four years, it's been on my bucket list. I have a very short bucket list actually. It's pretty much just NaNoWriMo and restoring an old RV. If I were to have to live like I was dying, it wouldn't have much to accomplish. I should probably start working on that list...after November, of course.

I tried last year. I made it to about 5,000 words before I was sick of what I was writing. I was trying to write fiction, and I'm not so good with fiction. (Not to assume I'm so good with the non-fiction either) I can never get the correct voice, and it's just a big ol' mess. 

This year I'm trying to do a short collection of "funny" (funny to me, but I'm also easily entertained) stories from my life. I know with the baby on the way and a crazy two year old, I might be fighting a losing battle, but it seems like this might be the last time in a long time I'll have the "extra" (if you mean writing on my breaks at work) time.

Good luck to me, and may the odds be ever in my favor....
