I’ve decided to participate in NaNoWriMo this month in the hopes that it will inspire me to begin writing again. At least writing about something other than what happened to me and what I am doing in the day to day world.
Work is harder than I thought it would be and I’ve already been called up into the office to ‘discuss’ whether I can continue or not. Among other things. Anyway, I don’t particularly want to talk about it right now because I am upset and I actually can’t write about it without getting all worked up. It’s just the way it is. I’m going to be posting my daily (I HOPE it’s daily) effort here, as opposed to be writing a blog post because I don’t think I can do both. I started on Nov. 1st and I will probably continue to write about my daily grind in the coming days but right now?
I just want to write about something completely made up that isn’t too real and in my face. I’ve had enough of that to last for the next little while. That means that the genre I’ve chosen IS…(drum roll please…) Romance! ( with a mystery thrown in)
Please. No groans or grimaces. It could have been Chick Lit or Young Adult. No murder or mayhem for me please. No detectives, serial killers or police procedurals. No fantasy or science fiction-I just can’t put out like that. Those genres all require quite a bit of research and if I am going to crank out 50,000 words this month (and I’m going to try) then it’s got to be something I’m familiar with. And lord knows I’ve read a few romance novels in my time. So here goes nothing…or something…
I am going to post the NaNoWriMo under the heading ‘Sparks’, which is my working title. That way if you want to keep up with it you may, and skip it if you want to.
Love and hugs.
