I’ve been asked a few times about this year’s NaNoWriMo— National Novel Writing Month– whether I’d be participating, ect. To those who may not be aware what this is, it’s like a marathon for writers. Each participant will start November 1st, and attempt to write 50,000 words by November 30th. No one reads your story, quality isn’t an issue. It’s a chance to shut up one’s internal editor and just write.

As some of you know, I’m now working on the third draft of a fantasy novel I mean to seek publication for.

1667 words a day is a reasonable word count goal… especially as I’ll be writing full-time in November. So! Anyone participating is free to follow along with my progress. I have an account here. Friend me!

  1. Well, not easy, persay. But I churned out that much last year while I was working full-time. Now that I’m not dragging myself to my computer after an eight hour day, the prospect will seem rather pleasant in comparison.

  2. It sounds like it’s at just the right time for you, while I’m consciously trying to leave the novel writing alone at the moment, so I think I’ll give this one a miss.

  3. I had my ninth grade students participate last year, and they truly amazed me. I think they amazed themselves. Most of the kids who signed up didn’t want to be in Creative Writing per se, but rather — they didn’t want to be in band or accounting. We had a fantastic time regardless, and they churned out the words. It’s a great program, for sure.
