Jump-starting the novel

I’ve finally decided to give myself the kick-in-the-ass I needed, so I’m participating in a January Challenge at my online writer’s group. This month, I’m going to do my edits and rewrites to the novel guerilla-style, setting a goal of 7 pages a day from now until January 31st. At that rate, by the end of this month, the book will be ready to send to my agent.

I’ve been struggling with the whole fiction genre–non-fiction has always been my comfort zone–but I love the story/plot that I’ve created, and it’s about time I get it out there.

Wish me luck!
