>So I spontaneously decided to jump on the band wagon and participate in NaNoWriMo this year. (Click here if you don’t know what that is.) I’m very nervous about this because not only have I only finished about three stories in my life, all of them have been worthless and very short. I’ve never written more than 20,000 words in a story, and even when I was on a roll it took me all summer to get that far. It’s a good thing I don’t have any school work to do, because other than work, I’m going to be writing a lot. Hopefully this will be a good exercise in accomplishment.
The reason I didn’t sign up for it a long time ago was becuase I knew that there is no way I could write 50,000 words in a month, much less a year. But then I told myself, I guess I will never know until I try. So here’s just another reason to put off “Into the Flames,” because it’s almost done so I can’t use it for NaNoWriMo. Instead, I have chosen “The City of Orphans,” a tale from the fantastical land of Pocatello. Which, in case you were wondering, was named after a random city in Idaho that I found while perusing my states puzzle when I was younger.
And so, into the melee!
