The Great American Novel

Creative Writing class is over for this session and I feel as though I have been renewed with the desire to write more. Not only write more, but write BIG! In this case, big means that I've decided to write a novel.

Now, for those of you who know how much I like to read Nora Roberts books, don't worry -- this is not a romance novel. Actually, I'm not at all sure what kind of novel it's going to be. I know whatever it ends up being, it's going to fantastic... it's also going to be a best seller... and it's going to be turned into a movie!

That's not asking for too much. If I'm going to put all the time and effort into a novel, it needs to go the distance.

So far I'm on page three, but I have characters in my mind with a little story behind it. I'm not sure how it's all going to come together... I'm just hoping it does! I guess when we see my name on the best seller list we'll know it happened.

Well, I have to get back to writing...

Me again. Have you read Stephen King's On Writing? You'll appreciate what he says about plot...he NEVER knows where a story is going and doesn't care because the characters tell him. I can't wait to talk about your novel when we get together. Did I already say JoLynn has written a novel that's in the editing stage? Your input will be awesome. But I think our first meeting as a threesome we should talkk about YOUR plans!!
