So. I appear to be participating in NaNoWriMo – or National Novel Writing Month – this year.
The basic idea behind NaNoWriMo is to write a 50k word novel during the month of November. Because so many people participate, it’s a great way to keep your enthusiasm up for at least an entire 30 days – which is actually plenty of time to get a (very rough) first draft done.
… Or so I am told. I’ve never managed it myself. Which is why I’m participating this year.
