It will soon be November 1, and with that comes the annual writing frenzy known as National Novel Writing month (Not to be confused or equated with the organization by that name). After over a decade of writing with a particular group over this month, I once again have found myself being rejected and denied participation with said group. Despite that, I will be writing this month — and, with a group of others who have likewise faced their senseless censure.
With that off my chest, I feel free to open my notebook and write the first word. Yes, I’m starting today — as soon as I post this. Don’t know where the journey will lead, or what story will emerge. Then again, that is the fun, the mystery, the love of the November write! So, if you’re one of the rejected, or just one who likes to write with a smaller, more supportive group, then feel free to come and join us: https://www.facebook.com/groups/351645278350381/
