One Month=One Novel
What? Are you crazy?
Well, maybe. It's definitely been suggested.
am joining the November National Novel Writing Month at www.nanowrimo.org.
It's when a bunch of nuts, I mean, writers, each write 50,000 words between Nov. 1 and Nov. 30
Of course, when you're cranking out that much stuff, 80 percent of what you write is crap, but it does get the creative juices flowing because you don't have time to "second guess" things.
It's free, and just a month of ridiculous literary abandon (and an excuse to celebrate).
Join or not, or check out the 80 percent crap / 20 percent halfway decent stuff I'm going to try to crank out.
My user name is ECUDawn.
For those of you with kids under age 12, they have a young writer's version of it that works with local schools, etc.
Wow. Just writing that makes it sound like I have no life....
But any of you NanoWrimo folks in Eastern NC, let's network.
PS--for research for my novel, I'd like to hear from anyone who has had any major or minor paranormal experiences. I promise--no names will be mentioned....
