Two weeks ago, Kate shared her plan with the world: Write a Novel in 90 Days. The last time we met for coffee we were racking our brains trying to inspire each other with blog post ideas. This one came up and I committed. Why? One, I like a challenge. Two, I need to write more. Three, I’m a masochist.
The next course that gets me closer to earning my writing certificate started this week and it already looks like it’s going to be much more reading and writing intensive than the first. I’m excited because it’s covering a topic I like, and I am hoping to walk away with some significant editing skills. But it’s going to be time consuming.
Why not write a book while I’m at it? I might be laughing hysterically to myself right now.
I have 3 days before the challenge starts. I have no plan or project in mind. Hopefully I can change that. Kate made a Facebook group and the positive feedback and conversation is heartwarming–and I’m not going to have any time to participate in it. Such is my life. So if you’re in the group and wondering at my silence, it’s not you, it’s me. All me.
I have more than too much on my plate right now, but I’m ready to give it a go. Can I do it? I have absolutely no bloody idea. Do I want to try? Heck, yes.
My motto: no pain, no gain. I’m going to go laugh a bit more and attempt to plan.
