  • Mood:


November is National Novel Writing Month. This will be my first time participating. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. The goal is quantity, not quality. It doesn't have to be publishable; it doesn't even have to be good. It just has to be done.

This should be a fantastic exercise for me, since I am the queen of Starting-and-Never-Finishing. So this will also be my first novel ever. I'll be perfectly happy if this is never publishable anywhere---I just want to learn from it. So if I'm perfectly happy to throw it away, I'll have no excuse for stopping and throwing it out before I'm done.

I'd like to write a story about the soldier who got his ear cut off at Gethsemane when Jesus was arrested. I've always figured that his life must have took an interesting turn after that experience.

The time of Jesus was a very significant period in history, and I have learned that I know precious little about it. I only decided to do NaNo in mid-September. I've started researching, but the more I read the more I realize how little I know. I can't even come up with a plot before I know how life was lived. (I'm waiting for No Plot? No Problem! to be turned back in to my library so I can read it). I'm hoping I'll be able to write a semi-believable historical fiction come November.
