The one thing I enjoy about it is the sense of satisfaction from doing it. Completing daily word count targets, reaching the 5k 10k mark..these all fill my heart with joy and put a spring in my step .
When I sit down and create characters and plots,places and crimes I forget about the rest of the world for a while and these people who I create become real to me , I look up after an hour amazed and smiling contentedly .
Do you have a novel in you? Why not join the fun over at NaNoWriMo . It's inspiring and awesome and who knows just how much fun you could have.
