I know we have a lot of long-winded gasbags… err… I mean, eloquent posters on this site. I am thinking of taking the plunge and doing this, so I was curious to see if anyone else might give it a whirl.
Basic concept is to start and complete a 50,000 word novel in the month of November, starting midnight November 1st and close out the end of the day November 30th. Works out to about 1,667 words per day. From what I’ve read, it sounds like an interesting experience and forces you to get into the writer’s mindset. Does it mean you will be crafting the next great American novel? Probably not, but I think the experience of putting yourself throughout is what is truly worthwhile. I am guessing the moment of writing epiphany may come around day 10 or so… at least that’s what I’m hoping for.
