For those who haven’t heard of it, NaNoWriMo is ‘National November Writing Month’. It challenges you to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November.
I have considered doing it on several occasions and I sort of have done it once. The problem always seems to be that I’m in the middle of a manuscript when it rolls around, or I’m working on a short story for Christmas or something. This year I find myself busy doing some pretty heavy rewrites of my novel thanks to WordFalls excellent feedback.
The ‘sort of’ time I mentioned sadly doesn’t count, but I like to think it does. I was writing my first draft of my novel and I was half-way through it when November rolled around. At that point, I did go on to write 50K in November to finish my novel on the 28th, so that’s why I only ‘sort of’ count it.
I don’t know if I am going to do it this year. I haven’t made up my mind (nor do I know what I’d write if I did). What about you? Are you going to do it? If so, what are you going to write about?
