This year I stumbled upon a contest! It is the National Novel Writing Contest. Since I am currently deployed and will be returning home this month…I figured, “Why not?” What is even more interesting is the fact that you can only write fiction…hence novel. My last book was non-fiction so I have decided to try my hand at a little fiction! The contest officially began on Nov. 1. The goal is to write 50,000 words in the 30 day period. So here goes! I started off strong yesterday and have yet to write one word today, but I’m sure I will by this evening. I will definitely keep you updated on my progress. Maybe you have a novel you’re interested in writing? It’s never too late to get started. It’s free to join!
