Everything is going along quietly here... nothing much to say, so I haven't been saying much.
I'm set up to do Nanowrimo next month. Nanowrimo is "National Novel Writing Month" and it's a great challenge. The goal isn't to write the perfect novel, it's merely to write the right number of words in the format of a novel. Last time I did it, I succeeded. But I had an easy thing to write about; I was writing about Frankie's illness. All that writing actually helped me process the stress. I thought it would eventually turn out to be a novel, but even though I succeeded - I wrote the correct number of words -- I didn't polish it enough to be a novel.
This time around, I'm going for fiction. That's all I've had, up until today. I want to write fiction, and I want to succeed.
I narrowed it down a little over the weekend, deciding that it wouldn't be fantasy fiction. Too many people are really into Neil Gaiman, including me, and he does it best. I don't want to try that yet.
Today, I narrowed it down even more. I think I will write fiction for a teen or pre-teen market. And obviously, it should be about boys, since I have boys.
Any boy names? I have to come up with a character next. And then, a plot. (gulp.)
