Tomorrow is November first, the start of National November Writing Month. I did it last year and that is how I started my book The Chic Bootlegger. I continued writing the book after last November until I got to over 150,000 words and I’m still not done. This year, I am determined to use this November challenge to finish my book at long last. The challenge, I feel, provides a great incentive to sit down and write simply for the sake of writing. This summer I took a break from my book because I went overseas and then when I got back, I went to my sister’s and then I went away with my mother and also to Boston and my computer went away to computer heaven (thank goodness I saved my book on a UBC). Now I need to stop making excuses and huddle down and force my story out of my head and onto the computer. It is only a matter of doing, not procrastinating.
