I’ve signed up and even got the user name nils. If you’re on the project, add me as a buddy or something, if you want. We can cheer each other on. 😉
I have not decided what I will write about, and even less of an idea whether I will actually manage 50k words. It does not really matter whether I will fail or succeed. Either way I’ll learn something in the process, and it should be fun.
I’ll definitely work a little ahead, that is, I will work out my characters, plot, and setting before I actually start writing in November. I’ll have to work full-time, and if I need to stop writing in my precious spare time to think about those basic questions I’ll never make it. Maybe I’ll simply take November 2009 off and write full time for thirty days. But let’s not go there yet.
