Writing a novel

There are so many things I want to do...Gosh! The list seems endless. I recently put up a post for the competition Surf Excel Matic #GetSmart Contest  titled ‘Give me two extra hours in a day and I’ll stretch it to eternity’ where I stumbled on the idea of a Bucket List.

One of the things on top of my list among the others is to finish writing a book. Publishing it isn't as important as completing what I set out to do. I’ve started two books, but sadly, I haven’t even gotten halfway through either of them. Inspiration hit me when my friend Sumira put up this post: Writing a Novel in 30 Days. Wonderful idea and doable too, if one was to just make time.

Still, I haven’t gotten close. Working fulltime and trying to complete a novel is very challenging. I’m hoping to get started by January 2012 as December 2011 is tough considering I have other critical deliverables.

Wish me luck!

All the best! Now that I've reached the 50K mark, I can say with experience, it isn't as hard as you think. Just getting into the habit of writing daily might seem difficult but once you begin, the novel will take a life of its own. Trust me.. :)
