Good evening…nearly 12am — I am ready for NaNoWriMo -2017. My characters have been patient — there are only 20 minutes and 12 seconds before I can let them fill the blank pages to start this year’s novel-writing-challenge. Yes, writing is just like any other business that goes from month-to-month then quarter-to-quarter to wrap up each fiscal year only to start fresh with new goals and objectives. I consider November the begining of my writing year. My goal is to win strong – by exceeding 50,000 words. This will give me the momentum I need to meet my annual writing goals. Enough said…my characters are ready to “start the show”! Time for me to start the engine on my laptop and keep my fingers glued to my keyboard for 30 days to finish this first draft novel. Happy writing!
