In recent years I’ve been dodging NaNoWriMo as I’ve not really seen its worth, or not worthwhile for me, at least. (NaNoWriMo, for those who don’t know, is National Novel Writing Month. A challenge to write a 50,000 word novel, or 50k words of a novel, through the month of November. I successfully finished it, I think, in 2008.) And that was my intention for 2020.
But, as is the case sometimes, I have a story idea that I just can’t shift.
It came as a title.
I think, if I remember correctly, that I was looking at ghost story novels and collections, and the title popped into my head. I had no inkling that it was going to be a working title of anything. That happened over the course of a few days.
And then I thought to myself, “Maybe I should try NaNoWriMo this year?”
So, there we are. 🙂
And the tinkering with story ideas and doing some writing fits nicely with 356 Days Of Writing. More on that later.
