It is National Novel Writing month, so I've decided to do like Mikel and attempt to write a novel by the end of the month. If you want to know the details of this little competiton, they're here. It is supposed to be a minimum of 50,000 words, so that means I need to put down 2000 words a day, because I started late (yesterday).
I got the theme for my novel from my daughter's overnight guest, Chelsea... and the title from my son Joe. I also consulted Chelsea on a few technical points... which annoyed the hell out of Sarah (my daughter) who claimed at one point that Chelsea was writing the whole story (NOT!)
For example, I asked Chelsea if she thought I should write it in past or present tense, and whether certain characters should be male or female. Aside from that, the rest is all from my screwy head.
If you'd like to check it out, there's a link in my sidebar... as well as a link to Mikel's. You can also comment as much as you want to, and I may utilize your suggestions as I write and re-write the story.
