30-Day Novel!

typewriter-801921_1920

So. A crazy thing happened the other day.

I sent a sample of my writing to an agent.

And she actually responded.

And she actually liked it.

This is crazy for 2 major reasons:

  1. I never share my writing with people I don’t know. Well, besides on my blog, but that doesn’t count. Right?
  2. You cannot convince me that I am a good writer. Which, I know, is crazy since I’m trying to be a writer and all.

Anyhow, back to the other day. She responded. She liked my 5-page sample. She asked for more — the full manuscript, in fact. Which is like gold for a writer. Unless you are a writer that does not actually have a full manuscript, and sent a query letter assuming the agent would hate your work…

Yeah, that writer is me.

AN AGENT WANTS TO READ MY MANUSCRIPT!!! *cue celebration*

But, I don’t actually have a manuscript. *cue that noise they play on Wheel of Fortune when your Plinko chip drops to zero*

Luckily, I have a plan.

The Plan:

I will write a manuscript! And though the aforementioned agent may never read said novel when I finally finish, to punish me for my lack of preparation (which I deserve), I will have a novel at the end of it all. Something I have been meaning to conquer for quite some time. So, in the spirit of NaNoWriMo, which I missed by a couple weeks, I will endeavor to complete a full-length novel (rough draft) in 30 days.

Wanna join me for the journey?
