And with it comes NaNoWriMo. I’ve been hearing about this for some time as several people from my old writers’ group, Buffalo Writers Meetup, have attempted it and talked about it at meetings. This year I’m jumping in.
I must be getting old. I can’t remember which came first — my interest in elephants, or the idea for a story about an elephant. Whichever the case, I’ve decided that my NaNoWriMo is Magua the Elephant. I wrote a blog on the subject here.
I should also mention the book about elephants by Ellis Nelson; it too, was one of the prompts that got me interested in the subject.
So I’m looking at a commitment to 2K words a day. I’ll try to keep up with the blog. It’s been …. so far. Yeah, fun. Really.
Okay, exciting – I’ve got the feeling in the gut about this; the one where you’re frightened and excited in equal parts.
Let’s do this.
