Are You Novelling?

Over the last few years, National Novel Writing Month aka NaNoWriMo has become huge. It’s a great way for anyone to express their creative side or for writers to finally get that novel written and finished. I’m always delighted when I discover someone I know is doing NaNoWriMo. Are you novelling this year? Please say Hi and become my buddy at ShireenJ!

A friend introduced me to it in 2009, and I’ve written a novel or non-fiction every year, though most remain unpublished. This year, I set myself the challenge to both write and edit for public consumption a satirical novel focusing on every Torontonian’s favourite subject. No, not raccoons. The TTC. Louise and The Men Of Transit.

“Louise has been hired by TTC management and dives into learn all about customer convenience on transit from her idol, the CEO. She eagerly adopt her idol’s way of wearing a name tag and riding the subway. And then she meets Jim.”

So far I’ve written a chapter daily and have uploaded them to Wattpad. If you don’t know Wattpad, it’s a free Toronto-based website devoted to providing stories on any device, readable anywhere in the world. You can read without joining. If you join, you can comment on any chapter or story, build your library of favourite stories, or follow your favourite authors. My plan is to post a new chapter every day and am hoping writing this post will make it so. Accountability works! You can read it here -> https://my.w.tt/Xywq8XN0BR
