Writing Well...

is not required during November. At least if you're like me and signed up to participate in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).

The idea is to write a 50,000 word novel during the month of November. It doesn't have to be written well. In fact, they encourage you to send your inner editor on vacation for the month. Save the editing for later. Just write.

This will be my third year as a NaNoWriMoer. My last two attempts failed miserably. I can only hope I do better this year.

This is what I think I'll be writing about:

A story centred around 4 sisters the first few months after their grandmother's death. The sisters will be responsible for going through their grandmothers things.It will explore how each of them deal with this lost.  Each chapter will be written from a different sisters POV. They'll be flash back scenes from the girls childhood but also from their grandmother's life. They will of course be something that they'll learn about their grandmother that will shock them.

Haven't worked it all out yet but I've got a few weeks before I'm allowed to start writing.
