what a rainy sunday afternoon!
since november begins this week, i want to revisit a fun, international project in which you may wish to participate (other than movember, which is not so good for us ladies, haha!)
check this out:
national novel writing month begins this thursday on november 1st. in a nutshell, the goal is to write a 50 000 word novel (about 175 pages) by the time the clock strikes 11:59:59 on november 30th.
i think this is such an intriguing idea! i had never heard of nanowrimo until a year ago when blog friend stephanie participated (and i wrote this blog post about nanowrimo last year). recently, fran was debating whether or not to join in again (she did last year)…fran, have you decided?!
i will not be writing the great kiki novel of all time in november, 2012. why? just like i said last year, basically, i have no story ideas! i’m NOT going to say, “i have no time,” because i believe that if anything is important enough to you, you make the time for it. if push came to shove, i guess i could take the easy route and write an autobiography of sorts, thinly disguised as a novel?
i also don’t think you need to have fabulous writing ability to throw your hat in the ring for nanowrimo. heck, if pamela anderson can get a novel published [kind of like if oprah can run a marathon...]…any of us could give nanowrimo a shot!
earlier this afternoon, i wasted a whole hour trying to compose a blog post. i am feeling out of blogging practice and deleted a few rough drafts – words are not flowing today (precipitation is about the only thing that is gushing forth, i guess!). i really have nothing BIG to say, i just felt like blogging, but i guess my brain has other ideas!
any takers on nanowrimo? maybe next year will be THE YEAR i join in!?!
