Starting a Novel Proves Boring, Sucky

2 Nov

National Novel Writing Month started yesterday.

So I started my really crappy novel yesterday.

I was so excited about this whole thing six months ago, but excitement has waned.

But I think it might be working out for me.  I really did just pound out 1700 words last night that I didn’t even care about.  Maybe that’s how novels are supposed to be written.  As I was plugging in my laptop cord last night upon my move from the kitchen to the living room–don’t know why I remember that autistic detail–I thought to myself, “Maybe this is how all those million-in-a-series mystery novels get written.  The authors really just don’t care.”

 I’m going to try to not care as much as possible about it and get as much done as possible, but I’m not sure how long I’m going to last.

Meanwhile, I’m still not live-blogging Damages.

Edit:  Did not work on my novel today, turns out.  Guess I should’ve spent time on that instead of making a hypothetical Sue Grafton book cover.  Maybe I’m not caring a little too much.  Whoopsy daisies.
