I've been thinking about doing this for several years now, and well, this year seems like a good time. I'll either write a novel, or get a fulltime job offer Nov 2 making it impossible to write a novel so it's win win!
From the website:
National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing on November 1. The goal is to write a 50,000 word, (approximately 175 page) novel by 11:59:59, November 30.
Because of the limited writing window, the ONLY thing that matters in NaNoWriMo is output. It’s all about quantity, not quality. This approach forces you to lower your expectations, take risks, and write on the fly.
Sooooooo, anybody interested?
I double-dog dare ya!!
