Novella in a Month

Hello all,

I’ve decided that I want to write a horror or scifi novella in a month, namely this October. It’s a self-inflicted challenge in the style of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), except I don’t have a specified word-limit to reach and the genre is clearly defined. Because I’ll be blitzing this task with a bare minimum of preparation, the end result will most likely be the literary equivalent of a B-movie, which is an incentive in itself. I’m telling you all this because the threat of an audience will be enough to keep me going; the three day a week schedule that I have for the blog already keeps me working. Since I’m unemployed, this is also a gambit to maybe make a few bucks on the side. If I don’t fail spectacularly and manage to deliver a semi-coherent story by the end of the month, I’ll publish it and put it on Amazon for all to read. This is also a step toward a dream of mine, writing for a living. If this is at all successful, I will be able to fulfill my dream of becoming a prolific writer of pulpy horror and scifi that will be optioned for film…Syfy Pictures Originals! And now, before I start regretting the decision, I bid you adieu.

  1. Yay, yay, yay!! Excited, excited, excited!! I can’t wait to read and honestly I hope you inspire me to find, nay MAKE the time to start writing again. I haven’t written anything non-movie or work related in over a month and it’s making me crazy but I literally do not have the time.

  2. Great news Vincent, good luck with it πŸ™‚
