A Challenge

During a violent storm in a tiny villa in Switzerland, a group of friends read aloud a collection of ghost stories and made a bet:To write a story based on a supernatural occurrence. This bet produced one of my favorite novels, Frankenstein.

NaNoWriMo only allows the participants a month to finish their novel; My challenge to my readers, in particular Jess and Prof. Bardiac, is this: to complete a novel(no particular genre) within a year, starting on the first of January.

I hope some of you take this challenge with me!

    Alas, I wrote a horrible novel once. It finally went into the trash, and there's no better place for it. (Along with a crappy play and some short stories.)

    I'll stick to reading and trying to write about what I read, but good luck with yours!
