I’m sorry to say that a year ago I committed to writing a novel in a month and unfortunately missed my goal. Not because I didn’t want to, but because life got in the way. If there’s one thing disney world teaches you - appreciate and take full advantage of the free time you have. Because with the way we work in America, we don’t get much of it.
With that, even whilst working at disney, I am attempting to pursue my novel again. But this time I know full well that 30 days will not be enough time, especially while working for one of the largest corporations on this planet….during bus(ier) season.
I may not finish but I’m going to do my best to write a bit every day. Writing is something I love to do, and make excuses that I don’t have time to do it. If I ever want to pursue writing as a career, I must begin to take it more seriously than I have. Even if that means just a bit of time each day to do what I love.
"Writing a novel in a month is exhilarating and stupid and we would all do well to invite a little more spontaneous stupidity into our lives."
Writing itself is spontaneous and stupid and risky and fun. It’s expression, it’s enjoyable and it’s a release. And it is what I want to do with my life, even if it is impractical.
I look forward to this challenge, and cannot wait to post about hitting my goals.
