I have an announcement.
It's kind of big. And kind of scary.
Thanks to my friend, who reminded me about this event, and to my mom, who did it last year, I am going to attempt to write a 50,000-word novel in 30 days, during the month of November.
I just know that as soon as I announce this, I'll get a full-time job, be working 50-hour weeks and be scrambling to meet the deadline at midnight on the 30th.
I really wanted to do it last year, just had zero time, while adapting and directing a play for my independent project.
So, we're going with NaNoWriMo 2010, instead!
This is going to be a GREAT challenge for me, who has, through the process of blogging, become fairly good at writing short, conclusive points with little buttons at the end of each post.
Fumbling through writing MUCH more than I'm used to is going to be a great exercise in patience and letting go creatively...(I think I'm going to have to get used to being OK with writing a lot of crap.)
Also, prepare for me to become totally obsessed with the number of words I produce a day and perhaps write about it here...
That's 1,667 words a day, by the way, if I want to make it to 50,000 by the 30th.
But, who's counting?
