Today is November 1st… The official start of National Novel Writing Month! Yes, I’m embarking on the journey again this year. “Pregnancy will not slow me down” is my mantra! No vacations on the menu for me, no hosting of Thanksgiving dinner, nothing to distract from the process for the entire month. A year of toying with my writing style and learning (and re-learning) the rules of grammar later, I feel much more equipped than last year. I’m tossing the current version of my novel and starting over because, if I’m being honest, it is crap and can’t be used for anything other than a learning exercise or a rough draft at best. This is the year, I can feel it!!
