Well today begins NaNoWriMo and my very first attempt at writing anything. I am both excited and terrified at the prospect of trying to write 50,000 words in one month. I have had a few ideas and until today I hadn't decided on which one to try going with.
But with the wise words of Margaret Stohl from the Smart Chicks Kick It Tour stop in Canada - "Write the worst book you could ever write, just get it down on paper. Then you will have accomplished writing your first book." (It wasn't exactly those words, but I do remember her saying to write the worst book ever and then you are officially a writer.)
