All my life, I’ve wanted to be a writer.
On September 21st, 2018, I decided it was way past the time to try and make my dream a reality.
There had been dozens (hundreds?) of false starts throughout the years. I have a closet full of half-filled notebooks and a disc-drive full of half-finished attempts to mark each of the times I had tried to set out on that quest.
I’m not getting any younger, so with more days behind me than in front, I’ve decided to take one more stab at becoming an author.
My biggest problem has always been sticking to a project long enough to finish it. I tend to do well with small projects – articles, essays, short stories, etc., but I always become discouraged when I work on bigger projects and end up not finishing them.
So this year, I decided that in order to force myself to work on one big project from start to finish, I would participate in NaNoWriMo.
For those not familiar with NaNo, you can read all about it Here.
During the lead up to NaNo 2018, I began posting daily status updates on my Facebook profile, informing my friends of my attempt, so as to hold myself accountable, and to have more incentive to at least finish NaNo.
The following is a collection of those posts.
