Welcome!

Welcome to my blog! 

Having been inspired by National Novel Writing Month, but knowing that I'm not quite prepared to take on such a task in such a brief period of time, I will be attempting to write 1000 words a day about something from here until a novel is finished. Some of the things will be planning and prep pieces for an eventual novel. Other things may actually be parts of that novel. Other pieces still will likely be just random little ideas or projects. 

I plan to only post relatively short, completed (even if still a draft) pieces here or excerpts and concepts that I could use a lot of help with. More than anything this is my attempt to be accountable to my dreams. I want any of you who read this to challenge me on this discipline. For any of you who would be interested in occasionally seeing everything I've done and how much progress I've made, I will be storing all of my work in a Google Drive folder that I would be happy to share with you.

If you have interest, please read and critique anything you can. My goal is to eventually write and publish a novel, so I'll only be able to improve to that level through deep and fair criticism. Feel free to ask me at any given moment how things are coming along and to challenge my technique, style, and ideas.

This blog is a shell and will hopefully be a little more robust as I invest some time in making it attractive and a bit more functional, so bear with me on that. 

Thank you for your time and interest!
-Jim
