In honor of National Novel Writing Month, I tried to write about 1,000 creative words a day. If I followed this through all of November, I would have had about 30,000 words at the end of the month. This is 30,000 words of random beginnings, middles, and ends of different stories and whatever happened to be floating in my head on that particular day. And now, my final word count of the month:
Not exactly 30,000, but it’s good enough. It’s enough to work with, and it’s enough to set up a time in my daily life to sit down and do nothing but write. I got an outline for a short story to write, the foundation of a reboot from something I wrote in high school, and quite a few ideas on paper that I wouldn’t mind playing with later on. I learned that I write better with an outline in front of me (which, granted, I knew for a while).
Now that December is here, it’s time to make a new goal. The December Goal is two-fold:
1. write a short story
2. find one or two journals to submit it to
I will let you know how that goes.
