Geez … It’s November 1, the day is almost half over in my part of the world and I have yet to begin on my 50,000 words for National Novel Writing Month (which I said I would do, fool that I am).
Actually, I don’t find the writing daunting. I will, but not yet. No, my stumbling block is where to start. I’ve made an effort not to plan anything, not to research anything, to just start and see where it takes me (and what pops up along the way).
But getting it started … I actually work best when I’m given something arbitrary, like those exercises where they provide you with a first sentence or a title and regardless of what you write, it has to be used. I tend to be most creative then.
But yada yada, and all that. I can’t be writing this when I have at least 2,000 words about something, Lord knows what, yet to write.икони
