Anyone participate in NaNoWriMo (November Novel Writing Month)?


Recommended Posts

Most of you know I'm a writer and have been most of my adult life. Anyway, in a few days (November 1st) begins NaNoWriMo, which is a competition that happens every year where people who have always wanted to (or have done so numerous times) attempt to write an entire novel in a month. They actually have a lot of information on how to get involved at nanowrimo.org. Basically, the goal is 50,000 words (a small novel), and people tend to share their works in progress with everyone as they go along, and there are discussion groups for all sorts of different areas all focused on reaching the goal.

 

Anyway, my novel this year has the working title of 1991. It's an action/adventure told from the perspective of both the main character in 1991 and a historian today, trying to uncover the original story.

I tried 4 or 5 years ago and gave up after a week. I have a lot of ideas for something I want to write, but after a few pages I'm convinced that it's crap, and I've never been good about just accepting that a rough draft is going to be, uh, rough.

Hey, at least you tried.
