We sat down together a few days ago for a discussion of our distinct lack of progress over the last twelve months. The topic was nothing new. The same old finger-pointing took place and then we admitted our guilt and set to work concocting a new plan of action for getting our writing kickstarted coming into November. And what did we settle on this time? That’s right, a hefty weekly fine to be paid into the joint account every Sunday if a new chapter is not produced by Friday of every week. It had to be big enough to spur us to action because as our mom, Nancy, stated, “We’ll buy our way out of this if we don’t make it painful enough.”
Will it work? We’ll just have to wait and see.
As for the rest of our writing friends participating in NaNoWriMo this year. We wish you the best of luck. May your fingers fly across the keyboard. (Anne hasn’t ruled out participating yet, as it is still only the 2nd of November. She’ll let you know in an upcoming blog post.)
We hope you had a great Halloween. As always, thank you for your support.
Anne, Nancy, and Eric
