Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!

Like Jim Winter, I’m sitting here on my laptop watching Monday Night Football and outlining my novel for NaNoWriMo. The only difference is I’m only outlining the title page (how many words can that contain?). I’m not sure now I talked myself into this, but I’m game. I have four days of air travel ahead of me. That translates into close to 24 hours of sitting. So, I’m thinking that’s at least 20,000 words.

I’m also thinking about starting a flash fiction event on this blog every two weeks. What do you guys think?

Good luck. I'm anxiously counting down the hours to lunchtime, when I commandeer a conference room and commence to typin'.

Enjoy your month of Stupid Writer Tricks! Were you planning to do the flash fiction in conjunction with NaNoWriMo? I hope so, because that would be kinda nuts.

I like writing while football's on. I feel appropriately social (I'm not paying full attention to the other people in the room, but they're not paying full attention to me), if anything interesting happens I can look up, and the rest of the time it's pretty easy to tune out. Haven't mastered writing on planes--on a good day, I read; on a bad day, I feel mildly lousy for the rest of the day.

And re: title page, the answer is 250. :)
