My Plans for November: Self-Experiment #4

Starting November 1 I will be writing a novel. This will be a totally new experience for me as my longest story to date was about 5,ooo words and written over 20 years ago. I have ideas forming in my head about plot and characters and very vague at this point, I think I will use some characters that have been floating around in my head, but never fully developed whole stories around.

I am doing this to lose my hesitance about letting my ideas take shape and fly. It is my next self-experiment to see how it all unfolds.

The question is am I a writer. I am not sure, but this will bring me closer to a definitive answer. The fact that I am excited about doing it tells me something. I will have to write over 1500 words a day. That should at least get me closer an answer.

I am thinking about an epic fantasy with strong female characters, but like I said it’s still in the nebulous stage. I feel like by November 1 I will be so ready to write it will burst out of me. Maybe the experiment has already begun.
