In an attempt to get the creative juices flowing, and because my husband suggested it would be a good idea, I’m going to give NaNo a go this year. “What’s NaNo?” you ask. Well, November is National Novel Writing Month, NaNoWriMo, during which thousands of writers throw sanity out the window and try write a 50,000 novel. Check out nanowrimo.org
While I do hope to hold onto what fragments of sanity I have left, I also hope to get 50,000 words down. I’ve done it before, and I do have an idea, bits and pieces of a world, and at least one fleshed out character, which is all more than I’ve gone into NaNo with before, so I’m feeling somewhat prepared.
Until tomorrow morning, and I try to write the first words. Then it may all go out the window. Or I may throw myself out the window. Defenestration or write a novel… tricky choice.
