NaNoWriMo 2007

by Rob Friesel

Well, November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo, that is to say). Had a hell of a time of it last year1– made it to 50,688 words in 25 days with what really did resemble a complete story by the end of it all. Still haven’t revisited that story as I’d planned to… but there’s plenty of time for that later.

Undecided if I’ll do it here in ’07. The rules state that you need to start fresh — with a blank canvas notebook. In other words, you can’t just “continue” with something you’ve already got started. And as I’m 12,932 words2 into my current project, that’s pretty much out. I may “follow along” and see if I can’t put 50k worth of material into the current project in the spirit of the ‘WriMo — but we’ll see… In any event: for those of y’all out there rocking the pen and paper (or word processor or whatever) in ’07: have fun hitting the 50k. It’s a fun trip.
