How hard is it to write a novel in one month?

Last month's challenge for 30 submissions: 2 sales to children's magazines. 1 agent reject. 3 editor rejects.

I'm half way to the required 60,00 words.
It's hard to carve out time and rev up the mind to a time long ago. My story takes place fifty years ago on Okinawa.

Do you wonder when your manuscript is finished?  I don't let that stop me from sending it out.
It has to leave home sometime. So, I bless it and send it on its way. Sometimes we hold ourselves back.

Hello friends!
I'm challenging myself to submit everyday for the month of October.
Check back to see how I did!
