Looking forward to giving my first go at NaNoWriMo or National Novel Writing Month.  Taking inspiration from my daughter Savannah who has successfully complete the event four times already, I am geared up and ready to go.

My launching point is the 30 short story ideas I generated in August of this year, with outlines for ten different stories.

The standard goal is 50,000 words, but I am setting mine at 30,000.

I have only found an hour to write per day so far, but have managed to do so for five days to date with a near 5,000 words completed.  I will have to step up the word count to make my goal but I think I can do it.  I should have at least six first draft horror/supernatural short stories by Novembers end. 

Then I can use the holidays to polish them up.
