The month of November is the National Novel Writing Month. It is funny, but 2008 is the 10th year and I’m just getting to hear about it. Anyway, I decided to join in. I have always wanted to write a novel, scratch that – novels! But I’m one of those people who starts, goes more than half way and then loses interest. That is why NaNoWriMo is good for me; I have to write a bit of the novel each day. Hmm. So anyway, this was my first attempt – The story of Halima, a foundling. I have absolutely no idea how the story is going to go; I don’t even have my characters settled or anything but this should be fun.
What I want to write is a romance novel and at the same time I want to show what has become a regular occurrence where I live. So for me, this is a journey and the fun is mostly in the trip not necessarily in the destination. So sit tight and enjoy the ride!
