To be clear, this is not a criticism of those who participate in November Novel Writing Month. I even had entertained the notion of participating this year but the two ideas I had for full novel length stories kind of petered out in the past month.
I’m working on a short story that I started a couple days ago. We’ll see how long it actually runs. Maybe it will be closer to novella length, who knows.
The important thing is that I’m writing. If I ever go longer than a month without writing, I hope those who love me and know me well will do me the honor of at least checking to see that I’m still with them.
