Where does the good go

Everyone’s got a book in them…and I’ve read mine

I’m doing the National Novel Writing Month challenge with my college roommate.

It starts tomorrow –so if there are any other people that wanna get in on the action, let me know, I can email you the challenge.

Or you can go to their site for yourselves.

The goal is to write 50,000 in one month. This is my second serious novel writing attempt…the last one failing a few years ago.

To be honest, I’m not quite sure I have a novel in me anymore. My mind and writing style has completely morphed into something more suited to writing dialogue for screenplays or TV shows…but hey, nothing beats a trier but a failure, right?*

*This is a phrase that my mother and her sisters have used on us kids all our lives. We don’t know what it means or who started it, so if anyone out there has any idea, please leave your comments.

    The phrase makes no sense.

    What’d you say about my momma?

    My wife participated in this project three years ago and succeeded in finishing.

    Dawn Summers presents, the story of a little red-haired girl gone evil. Or is evil relative, and it’s really Dawnie who’s gone mental? Maybe Esther’s in a mental hospital and she’s dreaming the whole thing…

    There’s your novel…
