Today is the start of NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month. I have to say, I am very intimidated. The goal is to write an entire first draft of a novel in 30 days (Nov. 1 – 30). That is approximately 50,000 words.

So – I’m officially procrastinating – writing this blog post.

I have the idea of the book in my head. Has something to do with a teenager that “selectively mutes” due to a trifecta of conflicts in her life. Then, through friendships she discovers her voice again.

We’ll see how it evolves. I’ll keep you posted – the next time I feel like procrastinating :-).

Until then, it is time to put some words down. I’m sure I’ll be back soon.

Anyone else attempting NaNoWriMo?
