NaNoWriMo 2011

Oh, right. NaNoWriMo starts in less than two months.

NaNoWriMo is the National Novel Writing Month – November, when a bunch of crazy people attempt to write 50,000 words in 30 days. It’s a lot harder than it sounds.

I’ve taken part in NaNoWriMo since 2008, and made the goal in both 2008 and 2009, but a new, busy job, a new girlfriend, and illness all conspired in 2010 – I didn’t even reach 10,000 words.

I fully intend a successful comeback this year. Failure, as they say, is not an option. I intend to work on something set in my Voyagers universe, but I am still working on the specific planning.

Will anybody of you take part in NaNoWriMo? What will you write about?

  1. I'm definitely PLANNING to take part in #NaNoWriMo. Got the metaverse of intelligent humanoid-animal creatures to explore. We'll see how it goes!


  2. I hope you can find the time. I love NaNo.

    What's your NaNoWriMo username? I am "nils" – feel free to add me.


  3. I have half of a steampunk street-gang-intrigue plot, a cache of stolen jewels, a villain dead nine years, a hero that’s the villain’s resurrected amnesiac corpse, tracking down his past life’s crimes.

    Bring it, November.

    (I’m ElizaWyatt, if you care to look me up.)


  4. Hi Eliza – good to hear you are also joining in again. I still have you in my writing buddies list, actually. đŸ™‚
