I've had a few people ask me over the years when or if they will ever get to read anything I have done for National Novel Writing Month. Even my husband has read only a selection or two of what I have penned, and he patiently supports me as I click away incessantly on the computer keyboard, muttering about lost plots and a Travelling Shovel of Death. It's not that I'm trying to be mysterious or anything about what I do each November. And part of being a writer involves sharing one's work, I know that. I do that here every week, and so far, so good. But I'm finding it to be a daunting task to take something that was penned in a month-long writing marathon and sift through it all to find the rough stones worth polishing and sharing with others. So far, I have worked on an entry from a couple of years ago off-and-on (mostly off), but again . . . it's a tad overwhelming.
So today, I'm taking a risk.
If you will look up at the Pages bar -- the one with the headers "Home", "About" and "Archives", you'll see something new: "NaNoWriMo Sample". If you click on it you will find a snippet carried over from last year's novel-writing marathon into this year's story. It hasn't received too many tweaks, so don't judge it too harshly.
It will be up there for the rest of this month.
