I woke up dreaming Thursday morning. The dream was actually something I think could make a good novel. With tweaks, of course. And since it is National Novel Writing Month, I decided to just start. I kinda have the plot laid out, but it will change, of course. It’s the most solid story I’ve had for a novel yet (which isn’t saying much).
Anyway, I started writing last night when we got home from Kennedy. I’m on Chapter 2. Chapter 1 really needs to be fleshed out some more, but it’s a first draft, so I’m going with it and plugging through. It will need major revisions when I’m done, but I’m too excited to get held back by that. I just want to get it down on paper now and revise later. I’m not brave enough to do the bit-by-bit story that Frank does or even to post good chapters here for you. Maybe once the whole thing is done, I’ll post it, but for now, it’s mine. All mine.
I’m so excited to be writing!
