I’ve been thinking . . . which is a dangerous proposition in itself, but in this case, It might be useful. As a lot of you probably know, this month is NaNoWriMo, which is short for National Novel Writing Month. The deal is, you sit down and write a 175 page novel (50,000 words) in a month. The emphasis is on quantity, not quality. NaNoWriMo
It’s day four, so if you want to do this and haven’t started, then you’re already behind. Its main aim is for people who can write only part-time in little snatches, which is sort of how most people get started.
If you’re wondering, I’m not taking part. (grin) However, I am going to be writing rough draft this month, and it might be fun to compare and contrast with some of you who are participating.
So if you’re going to take part in the NaNoWriMo, write in and tell me where you’re at. I’ll be doing the same with my plodding along, outlining format. And again, there is no right way to write, so we are all doing this the correct way.
Today, in my official Not-NaNoWriMo, I have again procrastinated with other work, confining my rough draft of book ten to ideas in my head. Tomorrow, I will pick up my pencil and write something down. Promise. How about you? Where you at?
