It occurs to the present author that, National Novel Writing Month has been attempted by said author on three separate occasions, and yet, has only been successfully culminated on one of those occasions. That said occasion occurred back in 2007, during a period of incredible depression and social anxiety, and boredom from college, is a point not lost. The two other attempts, occurring in both 2008 and 2011, started off promisingly enough; the present author accrued about 15,000 words in a few days, but around that point, both times, hit a wall. Given that said author now has a multi-page outline of the novel that the author wishes to embark on, as well as several scenes floating around inside the author's head, it is hoped that the most recent event, here in the year 2015, will be more of a success. Given the distinct challenge that it is to actually write a 50,000 word novel (which is, it might be added, an extremely short novel), this is unlikely.
