Bienvenidos

Here’s the deal: I’m writing a novel. This year.

Why, you might ask? For the usual reasons. To make something good and put it into the world. To say things I think are important. To see my name in print with a wider circulation than I’ve had. For a challenge. For a good time.

There are several complications. The first is that I am a full-time law student. You’ve heard the saying, yes? “First year they scare you to death, second year they work you to death, third year they bore you death.” Well, I’m starting that second year. I’m managing editor of the school newspaper, I’m in the a cappella group, and I run around doing various public interest-y things. And I’m married. But I want to do this anyway.

There are two other factors. One is that this is a giant undertaking and I will give up quickly if I don’t put a system in place. I’m human and lazy. The second is that I don’t want to write a really shitty novel that my mom will smile politely at and then will sit on my hard drive forever. (Actually, my mom would tell me if I wrote a shitty novel.) I want to write a “real” book that’s pretty decent.

The Little Mornings is part of the solution. This is my place to set goals and page counts that are humane but real, and stick to them. This is my place to bitch and whine when it’s not working, and cheer when it is. Every week I’ll post my progress. And the goal is this:

By one calendar year from now, July 20, 2007, I write a complete first draft of a novel totaling 275 pages.

I don’t expect a big following here: it just won’t be that fascinating. But if you’re reading, thank you. Post a smiley face when I’m having writer’s block and an existential crisis; it’ll mean a lot. Tell me what you’re working on so I can cheer you on too.

Let’s get started.

    You can probably guess why I went ahead and hired an intern with whom I am now collaborating on a case study project. When you’re starting out and you have limited resources and no experience, you take your first steps in solving problems using what you have. And where do you get your first steps? You make them on your own — you try to solve problems without any ipprism guidance. You scratch the surface of what’s possible with your limited resources, with what skills and knowledge you have, then try to carve out some space for yourself.

  30. Emma says:

    Hy!
    your blog posts are beautiful and so eloquent! I love hearing about what the ipprism team has been up to and the great experiences that you all have had.
