National Novel Writing Month
Apparently, November is National Novel Writing Month, which doesn’t just mean that we should be celebrating that fact that novels get written. No, it means that some crazy brave souls out there attempt to write an entire novel in one month flat.
Initially, this proposition filled me with wonder and awe, especially when I look back on how long it’s taken me to write my own novel thus far. Then this mad thought crept into my head: given that it’s still only the 4th November, maybe I should sign up and give this a shot and see if I can write a complete novel in one calendar month? I can’t quite decide whether to go and lie down in a darkened room until this feeling passes or to just sign up and be done with it. Will keep you posted on what I decide.
If you’re also interested in such madness and/or would like more information, check out the website at National Novel Writing Month.
