National Novel Writing Month 2014

I am participating in National Novel Writing Month this year. A couple of my friends have been doing this for several years now but I finally have the time and the idea to make it happen. My novel is currently called “Cascade” and It is coming along pretty well, if somewhat more slowly than the 1,666 words per day that I need to put down to meet the 50,000 word goal by the end of the month.

My greatest challenge is sequestering myself and actually spending the time writing. My fiancee and I have a lot of plans and sometimes it is difficult to say no to plays, museums, or visits with friends in order to sit in a room and write. To try and outsmart that issue, some of us are getting together for a “write-in” I have some whiskey and wine and we are going to write like Hemingway and revise in December.

If you are doing NaNoWriMo, hit me up my handle is MakerMead. If you are doing it, then I wish you luck.
