It Begins...

It's that time again. And I'm off with a bang!

5100+ words today. It's National Novel Writing Month! And this year? Robb's participating as well. He did over 900 words on his lunch break at work, and he's past 2,000 words at last count. Holy hell! I'm so proud of him I could bust! Hooray for novel writing!

Make that over 3100. He's a MACHINE! And he's a prolific writer, as well!

It's shaping up to be a good year. Writing my story in first person is proving to be a nice, freeing thing. I'm having trouble with tenses, for some reason, but for the most part, it's coming pretty easily. At least today. I had all day to write, though, so I squeezed in a morning session, a write-in with some folks at the Barnes and Noble cafe, and another writing session to push me to 5000 words in the evening.

I'm pulling for being done by the 20th, since that's when the new Zelda comes out!

I'm sure you'll be way sick of hearing about this by the end of the month, but...here we go!

Wow, you're both nuts -- in a good way, of course! Can't wait to hear more about your progress -- and the subjects of your novels, of course :)

What fun to have Robb join in as well! I'm doing it this time around and really looking forward to digging into it. Not done much so far but hoping for a nice long session with it tonight. Pesky work! Don't think we've forgotten about Jesus in Space either :-)

Ooh, forgot to say have you considered writing in all present tense. I've just read a book written that way and it was really good. Gives an immediacy to things.

I think I did that on...one of my novels...maybe? Not this one, though. There's too much history to tell it in present tense.
