Another NaNo Effort Reaches Mid-point
Progress on my novel is at fifty percent. This is half-way, on a 50,000 word journey to complete a novel in 30 days, during the month of November.
By now, there have been numerous posts about National Novel Writing Month, abbreviated as NaNoWriMo, and United States participation this year is in the THOUSANDS!
There are so many aspiring novelists in the United States, all of us competing for the reading audience, one has to have self-doubts about ever writing a "best-seller."
Most of us would settle for far less than a best-seller. Just publishing something without having to PAY a publishing house would be a pretty fair success.
There are many genre to choose from, and for NaNoWriMo 2009, I have chosen the Young Adult and Youth Fiction category. I am writing for the 4th grader through 8th grader market. Some would say that I have found the appropriate mental capacity for me to connect with. Ah so...doubters.
