I am participating in National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. It is a month of reckless writing abandon, in which the 'novelist' must produce a novel of 50, 000 words or more.
The website says it's about 'quantity, not quality' which is nice, and not nice. Nice to take off the pressure, but who is going to be spewing out a whole lot of literary crap next month? Oh, me.

I'm not sure yet what to write about. I do have lots of story ideas, but I like those ideas, and don't really wish to, er, bastardise them in NaNoWriMo. I may open up another blog and post the finished story there, or progress chapters or something. I may not. Just depends on how embarrassing the 'quantity' ends up being.

So while all those men are doing 'Movember' and trying to look all manly, I'm gonna be holed up in my room (like usual) trying to get out approximately 1666.6666666666666666666666666667 words a day. Which surely shouldn't be that hard but I know I'll put it off. A lot.

Note: Someone else should join in to! What ridiculous fun.

Catch ya on the flip side,

This is incredibly cool, and I am most definitely going to give it a go! It could be made mildly difficult by the fact that I'll be in New Zealand for a couple weeks of November, but whatever.. It's totally worth a shot!

Also, congrats on the double blogging.

Yessss! Do it! Tehehe. You can use New Zealand for scenery inspiration or something.

Haha, why thank you. I felt bad for promising blogs and not delivering, so two in one day - hoooooray!
