A Premise Devised and a Novel To Be Written

At long last, I have a suitable premise for my novel and thus the means to develop it fully. Now comes the process of placing pen to paper and inciting a story to life, abiding by the NaNoWriMo principle of free expression – not allowing my self-concerned literary prejudices (those of numerous, thorough self-critiques) to obstruct the flow of words. We shall see if it all turns out good and well at the end of the month! Till’ then, best of luck to all!

NaNoWriMo: Day Two

NaNoWriMo has already begun – so it’s time to get out those pencils and stacks of paper and start writing that novel!

Tomorrow I hope to begin work on my next novel, and at the same time completing my previous.

I pray let my writing, and that of my brothers and sisters in Christ, glorify the Lord.

National Novel Writing Month

Before the WordPress announcement about NaNoWriMo, I had no idea the event even existed!

Now that I have received news of it, however, I’m definitely interested in joining.

Whenever I write a story, I feel like I’m doing what NaNoWriMo says not to do – meticulously checking my work and being, in essence, also my greatest critic. Whenever I find myself stuck while writing a novel, it is usually due to this fact, and the mental exhaustion that comes with it. Soon writing develops into a tiresome chore rather than an enjoyable medium of creative expression.

As a result…

First off, I’m going to attempt applying the NaNoWriMo principals to the novel I’m currently working on – then when it’s done I’ll go back and make my revisions.

Second, I’ll write a second novel for NaNoWriMo and further rid myself of a frequently critical writing mindset.

If you’d like to read either novel, I should be posting excerpts sometime during or after NaNoWriMo.
