So last year I participated in National Novel Writing Month but didn’t pull it off. The idea is to go nuts and write a 50k word novel during the month of November. People all around the world do it, and it’s quite fun but very time consuming and pretty crazy. Last year there was too much going on for me to really focus, so I think I hit about 20k words. Not quite an epic fail, but not nearly what I had set out for.
This year I’m at it again. I’ve got some vague ideas as to what to write about and it should be fun. I’m definitely aiming for 50k words this month so stuff like blogging and other “extra-curicular” activities will be on hold this month while I churn out a novel (or something vaguely resembling one).
Wish me luck!
