Oh, NaNoWriMo. Last year I didn’t exactly cover myself with glory. I can’t even remember what I started writing, but I definitely didn’t finish it.
This year however, I’m already on 5,755 words! Hurray for myself! I have decided to use it as an opportunity to write something I never usually would, namely a thriller adventure with a touch of supernatural. Like so many of my ideas, it came from a dream I had a while ago. I often have exciting dreams, but often my stories aren’t so exciting. Hopefully this one will be.
It’s also really good to remind myself that writing is supposed to be fun. I feel like I’ve been so busy recently that I don’t write for fun anymore, and I do find that writing for an audience, at least initially, it the quickest way to write really badly.
So, maybe this is the birth of me, supernatural thriller writer extraordinaire. Hurray!
