I’m trying something new and totally different tomorrow. I’ve signed up for National Novel Writing Month. I’ve never attempted to write anything unless you count this blog and I’m not. So the point is to write every day, if it turns out to be something so be it, if not you’ve gotten your creative juices going. Here’s the rules from the site:
- Write a 50,000-word (or longer!) novel, between November 1 and November 30.
- Start from scratch. None of your own previously written prose can be included in your NaNoWriMo draft (though outlines, character sketches, and research are all fine, as are citations from other people’s works).
- Write a novel. We define a novel as a lengthy work of fiction. If you consider the book you’re writing a novel, we consider it a novel too!
- Be the sole author of your novel. Apart from those citations mentioned two bullet-points up.
- Write more than one word repeated 50,000 times.
Upload your novel for word-count validation to our site between November 25 and November 30.
I’m thinking about writing it right here. Read it don’t read it, it may not make any sense and it could be really stupid and I have a terrible time remembering names so characters could change names in mid stream. So join me here daily…I hope. Here’s my “novel” synapsis as it stands right now…no zombies though.
“Sure you’ve thought about being the only person left on the planet, but it’s totally different when you are. Can you survive with just yourself as company? Can you live in an abandoned world without the things you were used to, people, electricity, the internet? Then what happens when you start finding other? Can you live together or die alone?”
