I’m doing it this month!  November is National Novel Writing Month.  The challenge is to write a 50,000 word novel by the end of November.

I’m pretty sure that the novel is supposed to be fiction, but me and Da Roolz never danced anything but a psychedelic jitterbug.  I don’t have a fictional story in mind right now, so instead I’ll be writing my memoirs.  I want to get a feel for what 50,000 words really feels like.  I’ve also been reading a lot of autobiographical stories, like Augusten Burroughs’ Running with Scissors and Dry and the memories of food critiquing at the New York Times by Ruth Reichl, and maybe I can do some fictionalization and produce something like their novels.

Wish me luck!  I’m thinking this trip down memory lane will feel a lot like regurgitation, but the healthy kind.  Here I head down the peristaltic journalistic roller coaster.   Wish me luck!
