National Novel Writing Month
This is it: nanowrimo, or National Novel Writing Month. This is the month you release the character you've been carrying around in your head for years and give her weight on a page. Type her, scribble her, dictate her, rhyme her, pencil her onto post-it notes.
You know her. She's the one who wears only stripes, steals her grandmother's earthquake emergency cash ($10,000) and flies to NYC where everyone is a zombie except for the guys who makes hot dogs at Gray's Papaya on Broadway and 72nd. For some reason that particular corner is a zombie free zone.
Or you could write about the teenage girl who goes with her sister and brother-in-law on their honeymoon.
Or you could write about a girl who is being stalked by another girl who dresses just like she does.
Or the girl who finds out she can fly, but she feels like such a freak.
Whatever. Write it in November.
