I love November because it National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).
If you’re never heard of this monstrous web/literary event, here’s an excerpt from their website under “About NaNoWriMo”:
National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30… Because of the limited writing window, the ONLY thing that matters in NaNoWriMo is output. It’s all about quantity, not quality. The kamikaze approach forces you to lower your expectations, take risks, and write on the fly.
Fantastic! Fun! Frenetic!
Denton at Labville 50,000 is the only person I know of that’s taken up the challenge yet again – and his stuff rocks my world. I laugh, I cry, I wonder aloud about the whimsy of clown recovery programs… I live vicariously through him in this. And in many other things, in fact.
Are you writing a novel this month?
