|I did make all three of these hats in the last week, because snow!|
A couple weeks ago, I woke up from a very intense dream with a novel fully created in my head. We won't go into what Albus Dumbledore and Yoda have to say about dwelling on dreams (are they really just the same person?). My novel is going to be fantastic! Best novel ever written. It'll probably win awards, things like the "Kristina actually finished a novel" award, and the "Wow. She actually did it" award. Yup. I'll win accolades the world over.
And I'm going to have fun doing it, too. Perhaps I'll share some of it with you. Perhaps you'll join me? If you're participating in NaNoWriMo this month, please let me know. I am, of course, Bourbon Girl on NaNoWriMo.
Oh, and that NaBloPoMo thing? Ummm, did you see that I'm writing a novel this month? I have extracted promises of blog posts from all three of my children. Is that cheating? I call it collaborating. Maybe I can get Gary to blog a little for me. I have a couple posts I need to finish up, that have been waiting patiently for me to hit publish. So get ready for a whirlwind month of creativity.
Because you know what? Once you start writing, the ideas start invading your brain. And sometimes, a body just can't sleep because the ideas won't shut up, which means you must put them on paper, or in this case the internets. Louis Lamour said, "Start writing no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on." Excellent advice to start off a month of writing.
