NaNoWriMo

Anyone who thought my October Blogging Challenge was, well, challenging…

Or thought that Jason Clark’s upped ante (fifth item) for blogging the rest of the month was nigh impossible…

You should check out the National Novel Writing Month, where entrants are asked to write an entire novel in the month of November. Talk about a challenge! The folks as Blogger are also wondering if anyone wants to blog out their novel (using their service, of course). If you are blogging your novel let everyone know by signing up here. I wish I were up to the challenge this year, but I’m not. 175 pages (apprx. 50,000 words) is just unfathomable to me right now.

However, next year, barring severe and legitimate excuses, I will do it.

UPDATE

For those of you interested, Wizards of the Coast is having an open call for proposals for novels. The details are here and the deadline is March, 2005. Maybe it’ll be enough time for the NaNoWriMo participants to do a few rewrites.

    NaNoWriMo? OhNo!

    That would be me.

    What the hell was I thinking?

    You should check out… write an entire novel… 175 pages (apprx. 50,000 words)

    Oh. My. And here I was counting the days until October was over! Miss a day and you have to churn out an extra 1500-2000 the next day (in addition to your daily quota). But I’ll be looking forward to seeing your entry next year.

    dude
    you aren’t kidding about that novel writing. that is a ton to be doing each day! i’m honestly not even sure how people manage it. this entry alone is only 170 words. that would mean 10 more entries of about the same size and i could call it a day… yikes!
