is for NOVEL. I know this is something that I have wanted to do for a long time. That is write a NOVEL. I have always had a dream that I could see a story a tale of mine on the New York best sellers list. Is that possible ? Sure with a lot of work, with well drawn out characters that tell a story is read by many people.
But then I start thinking; will it make me happy or is this what I want to do. And then the next letter comes into play and I write little blurbs, snitches and dangling characters that are given a life of their own here in Merystia. I think that is the NOVEL that I want to write. I have a space for those characters. They can come here and be part of me and the pages of a blog which will eventually become a NOVEL.
Every November I take the plunge like so many others; and we try to write that NOVEL in a month. I enjoy it and it will be a part of me for a long time. Some day that book and that world that I have been working on will come together and formulate into something. I am not sure what will eventually come out of it; But I love the process and the tangents that have evolved out of the sprints have been fun.
I read NOVELS, high fantasy, epic adventures, Young Adult, urban fantasy, and others if they catch my interest. I even read the “free” ebooks that are dreadful and in need of a serious editor. But at the same time I am cringing through the grammar mistakes and the protagonist that is Godlike and can not be hurt, I keep saying to myself that they are a lesson to myself on how NOT to write.
So the big question is What is your NOVEL and will you let it be free?
