A piece I wrote for the local paper about the Grand Junction chapter of National Novel Writing Month was published today. (FYI: I have nothing to do with the online edition, so I claim no responsibility re: the misspelled word in the headline.)
I did it! I surpassed the 50k mark last night! Woo hoo! I can’t believe I didn’t do this last year, when I didn’t have a full-time job, nor was I doing any freelancing. Oh well. As Yoda would say, “Truly addictive, this is.”
And I’ve just found out that the Office of Letters & Light, the brain trust behind NaNoWriMo, is also responsible for Script Frenzy in April. B. and I have been mulling over a story for a screenplay the past year and have been letting too many things get in the way of actually writing the damn thing. Maybe that’ll be the kick-in-the-ass we need.
