NaNoWriMo envy

LifeMarylin2 Comments

So there are a lot of people doing NaNoWriMo this month. I have pondered trying it over the last couple of years, but I just don't think I have that kind of stamina for writing, never mind the creativity needed for it. I don't have a creative writer's bone in my body!

I think eh closest thing to writing a novel I could do would be memoirs, and really - you already get that on my blogs, so why would I bother re-hashing it?

I really admire those who have these ideas going around in their heads, and even more so the ones who actually manage to take that leap to writing it down on paper (or pc/mac... whatever).

To have the ideas for different characters made up in your mind, and make them into someone you can tune into and ride the journey with is truly inspiring. It's just not my thing.

Descriptive writing, I can do. Critical writing, I can do. Creative writing? Not so much. Certainly not enough to splurt out a 50k novel in 30 days!

So for those who are writing for NaNoWriMo, or just for yourself, at your own pace. I applaud you, I envy you, and I would love a cameo when your book gets made into a movie.

Go you!
