I have been issued a challenge and I've accepted. I am going to write a novel...in 6 months. There is a group, International Novel Writing Semi-Annum, that encourages this endeavor. I have decided to write a cozy mystery. I know my heroine and most of the major supporting characters. I know who is going to die and how...but I still don't know why...nor do I know who dun it! But, I need to start writing. I'm supposed to write 278 words a day and by the end of the challenge period I'll have a 50,000 word manuscript. We'll see how it goes!
