Everything from creative writing to tech today!
So I will be participating in NaNoWriMo once again.
For those of you who don’t know what that means, here’s the site: http://nanowrimo.org
NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writer’s Month. It’s a time when novel writers and those aspiring to become such, dust of their brain to try and to finally start and finish that novel idea that has been rolling around in their head for God only knows how long.
And I will be one of those that tries. The goal is write 50,000 words in a month which equates to about 170 to 200 pages, a novel. I’ve participated the last 2 years and have completed 30,000+ words on my novel, though 50,000 won’t be enough. So my book will be a wee bit longer. 😀
Anyway, the book I will be continuing, and fingers crossed finishing, will be The Eye of Elianah. I’ve really come to like this book but I’ve still got a ways to go and some revising to do on it. But the revising is to come later. During the month of November you should just write and not worry about how grotesque the writing looks. Just get the idea out. And once November is over? Revise the hell out of that thing. 😀
I’m shooting for 50,000 words to add to my current 30,000 words. That’s going to mean some late nights and early days as I have a full time job and we’ll be deploying our main project that is crucial for our team… Which will also mean, my posting will be minimal.
I’m going to make a promise to myself that the only way I get to post to my blog is if I maintain my goals, i.e. writing 1700 words a day… Which could mean a month without posts… But I will do my best guys and girls. So I apologized in advanced if I disappear off the face of the earth again. I will return, eventually…
And I will leave you now with my profile on the NaNoWriMo site where you can see the information regarding the book I’m writing and an excerpt: http://nanowrimo.org/participants/macwilson
Wish me luck!! And I MUST finish this book this year. I MUST!!
