It is just two days and counting until National Novel Writing Month begins...the 2012 version. I'm ready and excited to get my noveling on this year. Last year, I was worried that my quest to be healthier would be sidelined if I tried to write a novel too. So I skipped last November...although I did write a shitty first draft of a novel in July 2011...so I figured that counted as my one for the year. I know it was the right decision. When you completely transform your life you have to prioritize. This year, I have reworked things to make it completely possible. Now that I am hitting the gym in the mornings, I can easily write in the evenings. I have an idea for a quirky main character and the boy hero (or will there be two?) is starting to form into view. I haven't planned much, just made a few notes about some of the main ideas I have. I don't even know what my characters names will be. It is such a fun time of year. The moments before a novel is born. I am really, really excited. I can do this!!
