A Journal Keeper? A Novel Writer? A Prayer Journal Keeper? A Writer? A Self-Published Author?
In the last blog post, I admitted I was a little crazy and quirky. I am about to confirm this truth once again.
I've tried to be just a journal keeper and just a writer, and have tried to morph them into one a few times, and have done so for a little more than a couple of decades. Hence, the title of this section.
Since I came up with the idea for 9288 Prayers, I do not think I ever need to wonder about what I want to be when I grow up, or what I want to do with my life. so to speak. After all, 9288 Prayers is doing what I love to do, and have a passion for, and it's that of journaling, praying, and reading the Bible. I also have known since I was little that I wanted to be a writer, so this 9288 Prayers is a cherry on top for all of the things I've wanted to do, but have not been able to figure out how to work until now.
I tried to write novels. I wrote hundreds of unfinished manuscripts, as a matter of fact. And during that process, I took part in a writing competition to write a novel in a month, and in November of every year. It's called, NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). This is where people write 50,000 words in a month. I've done this since 2009.
During that time, it's become a write a book in a month, and write 50,000 words, whether it is fiction or nonfiction.
I just wanted to share and let you know my plans.
