I Must Be Crazy

For a lady who doesn’t actually do much blogging, I sure am ambitious.

I’ve decided to NaNoWriMo this year. For those of you who aren’t insane. NaNoWriMo is this thing you do where you write 50,000 words – the first draft of a novel, in one month. It works out to just under 1,700 words a day and by the end of it, you’re drooling and giggling and making farting noises with your armpits at perfect strangers while riding the train in the morning. All of which I do anyway, so what the hell.

NaNoWriMo is in November, but I’m going to get started on research now. This is sort of against the point of the thing, but I promise you that I won’t count a single pre-written word in my tally. Because I know you’re very concerned about these things, and really, who could blame you.

  1. I’ve done the WriMo several times.
    Once while teaching myself how to type on a new keyboard layout… oddly, that’s the only year I actually managed 50,000 words. That also turned out be only about half the novel. And there’s nothing wrong with doing research first. It beats doing hours of research and THEN trying to write 1,700 words in the same day.
