NaNo ‘04

November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)! Visit for all the details, support forums, &c.
The idea is to get people around the world to write a novel in one month. You know how you always say you are going to write that novel some day? How hard could it be? You could write it in the morning, before you go to work….
For the purposes of NaNoWriMo, a novel is 50,000 words. That means you need to write 1667 words a day for the thirty days of November. Most people emphasize quantity over quality — you can edit it later.
I “won” in 2003 with a 50k word detective novel. I’ve started making outlines for this years effort. I will perhaps update the blog as I make progress.
