Enter November

Happy November! Have you started your novel? November is National Novel Writing Month, and this year I am taking the challenge. NaNoWriMo challenges ordinary people like you and me to write a 50,000-word novel in month. I have tried and failed in the past, but this year I have no excuses. My novel is entitled, “The Adventures of Vodnik and Goldilox,” and the story runs thus: Vodnik and Goldilox are good monsters, breezing through life. Until they meet one day and fall in love. They are married and look forward to domestic bliss until the evil Bob kidnaps Goldilox. Vodnik must find his wife and defeat Bob before the worst happens!

NaNo is all about the act of creating, but they adhere strictly to their word count. I was thinking about my past failures, and realized that sometimes it just seems like too many words, too much time. Everyone knows that a picture is worth 1,000 words, and that sparked an idea in my brain: this year I will “write” a photo-novel. No words (unless I take a picture of them), just action. Oh, and the monsters are knitted. 😉
