Lesson one

We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.  
Ernest Hemingway

The window view by my kitchen, where I am writing and loving it 🙂
First day of the NaNoWriMo challenge and I have the pleasure to say so far so good. I was all ready to be writing my little heart away, except for my lack of story, plot, character, or scenes. You know the few particulars needed to write a novel… So I went back to the drawing board and as of today I have my plot, my characters, my supporting cast, three key scenes and even know how my novel ends. Having spent a bit of time fleshing out my characters (writing who they are like to get to know them better), I am really excited to try and give them life.

This is much fun, very challenging and I love it. Slept very little yesterday too many ideas dancing around, not really understanding all of what NaNoWrimo entailed before I was a bit nervous. Feeling much better today, still much to be doing but with a completed mind map it feels much easier. I have to tell you I find the whole experience quite invigorating and I am learning much about myself in the process. This creative journey of mine is turning out to be a real pleasure.
