In a flash of inspiration over the weekend, I have decided to take up pencil and keyboard, I have decided to take up the literary struggle of National Novel Writing Month — NaNoWriMo! As I gathered my plan in my mind, however, I found that the official beginning of the challenge was nigh, and I had not yet completed my plot. Inspiration had come too late for me, and I would have too little time to bring a draft into the world.
So I declared rebellion.
NaNoWriMo is supposed to last from November 1 to November 30, but I discarded this disgraceful detail. Instead, I will begin on November 5 and finish on December 5, fulfilling the 30-day time limit and allowing the plot to be written without rushing. All counter-revolutionary thoughts of laziness will be banished from my mind as I work diligently to write the novel.
As for the topic of my story, it is simple: a lawyer who lives in Montgomery County, MD and works out of a DC-based corporate law firm wants to acquire a healing staff on behalf of her client. She will face many an obstacle, but she will use her sharp mind and diligent work ethic to take on the challenges in her path.
