National Novel Writing Month

Time to write a novel in 30 days! 

This will be my third novel.  I have NO outline and only a vague idea of what I plan to do. We are all to begin to write our novels on November 1st. 

To meet the goal of 50,000 words in 30 days, I must average 1,667 words per day.  This may not sound like a lot of typing, but when it is being fabricated, getting those words written down can become agony. 

I would like to write a fictionalized memoir but need to find the right voice.  Perhaps from the viewpoint of the characters, one at a time, relating their version of the relationship each "experienced" with the main character, which would be a fictionalized "me."

There, now I have an idea.  Wish me luck.  The rest of my regular life is put on "hold" for the next month.
