I Can Do This . . .

50,000 words of fiction in November. A short novel.

November will be National Novel Writing Month. I'm going to do it. Want to join in? We could nag each other . . .

Don't worry - I promise not to post any of it here.

It might slow down my bickering with some of the people who leave comments, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

What do you plan to write about?

Don't really know yet - that's what October is for! I just know it won't feature a 47 year-old blogger . . .

Seriously? 50k in a month? Is that just a first draft? If I didn't have school stuff...

Yeah, the goal is to get something down on paper. Edit in December.

If you want to see something creative to get you started, rent the movie Tideland. You will either hate it, or marvel at the creative story unlike any other I have seen. The topic is disturbing, hopefully fiction, but at the same time could be very true. Very creative writing. It held my attention like so many others do not these days.

Can't wait to read the finished product... as I'm sure you plan on sharing when it's complete, yes, yes?

Dan, with all your words on here, I don't think 50k will be that difficult at all. And since I have quite a bit of time on my hands now, perhaps I could do it too. I'll chew on it while I walk the streets of Sarajevo this morning.

Every year I intend to participate in Nanowrimo, but I never get around to it. Maybe this will be the year...
