Nano Struggles

Hey kids.

Am a bit stagnated on the old Nano Novel. Stuck at about 18,700 or so. I am getting (what I am told are common) temptations to abort and start something fresh and new. I am going to dig in later this afternoon and just try to plow through.

I appreciate the emails of support and enthusiasm, and stuff that sounds like, "can't wait to read etc etc" but I just wanna say... the reason I emailed a buncha folks and told them I was writing was so I would be, well, shamed into following through, as I often jump ship and failt to stick with creative enterprises. This exercise is really about following through.

Even if this thing turned out to be tolerable, it would be a first draft and I wouldn't let a cat read it, unless he only couldn;t read in some foreign language.

On a side note, a friend of mine asked me if I would consider writing romance stories/novels. This is now known as "chick lit". The title itself is sort of disrespectful of the genre. The general implication is that the stories are sort of vapid and substance free, formulaic and shallow.

Well heck ya and write a story like that!

But seriously...I have contemplated pumping out one of these babies to see if I could make some easy cash. I would love it if anyone wanted to suggest some awful and/or thin plot lines.

Onward with the Nano for now!
