I’m doing the National Novel Writing Month challenge!

I keep saying I’m getting back into my first and most passionate love, fiction, but perhaps because I want to do the genre so much justice, I am some what paralised.

It was rereading Anne Rice’s The Vampire Lestat that I felt that old surge of “THIS IS WHAT I WANT TO WRITE!” It’s an important emotion you know? It really does help to have sense of why you want to write and what topics inflame the desire to make time for the act of it.

So from feeling that I wanted to write tragic, hopeful, deeply philosophically focused fiction I had the flash of inspiration that what could help is the National Novel Writing Month. I had also said I would sign up. So I am fulfilling two promises to myself and feeling a smudge proud.

You can follow my progress if you also sign up, my user name is rachael and jane.
