Good ol’ Kim on the sweaty horror that is NaNoWriMo.
Long time, no blog – sorry, everyone! I assure you I have a legitimate excuse, and it’s this:
All my ‘spare writing time’ has been taken up writing a 50,000-word novel in the space of a single month.
That means a month of planning and getting my head around a brand new story for most of October, and then writing an average of 1,667 words every day in November. And that’s not including the words I write for my day job.
For those who aren’t aware, National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, happens every year, and it exists purely as a challenge for writers. If you write 50,000 words of a novel in that month, you’re a winner. It doesn’t matter if you’ve written something awful, or if you haven’t finished your story, or even if it’s not a novel – the point is that you’ve written something.
