After taking a 3-month leave of absence from this forum, I feel almost obligated to take up the National November Writing Month challenge. Of course, I have written nothing but what you see here all of today, Nov 1 and it’s already 7 pm. But I do have a story in mind. In fact, the opening scene has been rolling around in my head for almost a year now. Or perhaps I could go with the title that has no story yet: Dragon under the Stairs. Although with no reason to point to, I think that one really should be a short story.
I encourage you to do more writing than usual this month as well. If you’re not ready to tackle a novel, do some short essays. Or poetry. Write descriptions of Christmas list items, or notes of appreciation to send friends for Thanksgiving. Be creative and express yourself more this month.
