Happy Halloween! I’m late posting this, but on the eve of NaNoWriMo, for all those of you who think you can’t write a book, it’s too hard, it takes too long, here is a book I wrote with my children today. The oldest came up with the main character, the middle came up with the plot and the title, I wrote it up, and the oldest illustrated it. Behold, a book. No, it isn’t 50,000 words, but as Lawrence Block said, “If you’re blocked, lower your sights.” Maybe you can’t write 50,000 words in November. But you can write 50. Or maybe 500, or 5,000, and that’s more than you have right now. If a 7 year old can do it, you can do it.
