I am neither becoming transgendered nor am I becoming a rock star but I am going to fit myself into a frame of Elvis’ mind – Every day I write the book. Come November 1st, that statement will become my new mantra. I have idly complained, mostly to myself, that I have not been spending any time with my work-in-progress. We have severe detachment issues but all that is about to change.
With NaNoWriMo looming, I have made a promise to myself to set a writing schedule and do everything in my power to stick to it. I am not going to set myself up for disappointment by saying I am going to finish my novel in a month but I am going to write as much as my brain will let me in the month of November. Hopefully the writing Gods will smile on me and allow my creative juices to flow freely and possibly continue on into December until the full story comes to fruition.
I am excited to get back into the character’s minds and allow myself to become fully involved in the process. There is a great story rattling around in my brain and it is time to put it where it belongs.
Perhaps I should also heed the advice of another popular Elvis – A Little Less Conversation (a little more action). Wish me luck!! And to all of you who will be officially participating in NaNoWriMo – may the force be with you!
