Library Confession

The books stare down from the shelves inspiring and intimidating me at the same time. I think I hear them talking to me as well.

“Write a novel or at least 50,000 words in the month of November,” the books whisper to me.

“OK,” I reply.

So this month I’m taking the ‘write a novel in a month’  challenge during National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to write at least 50,000 words in 30 days without going crazy.

Ahhh – I can’t find any words in my brain. Is this panic setting in?


I’m taking a deep breath and I will begin my challenge on November 1st.

Here’s hoping my book finds a place on a shelf in a library somewhere in the world.
