It’s November! And that means that it’s about to be my birthday and that it is also National Novel Writing Month. This year will be my second attempt at NaNo. Last years attempt started out really good, but various things caused my attempt to stumble. I got kind of close to my 50k words, but not close enough. I have gotten to the point that I can finish my album for the RPM challenge without too much difficulty (just a last-minute 15 hour mix down session and the traditional 6am Post Office trip in my slippers), but I don’t know what it takes to finish NaNoWriMo. As far as I can tell from others is that it takes coffee and insanity in near equal measure. Last year I had insanity, but probably not enough coffee. This year, I have decided that I’m going to finish no matter what!
To that effect:
- I have no idea what I’m going to write about
- I have only written 362 words of my daily need of 1,724
- I’m blogging instead of NaNo’ing
- I’m just about to head off to work where I can’t get any writing done
So, looks like everything is working out just great!
Anyway, if you follow me on Twitter you will probably see a whole lot of tweets with the words “shit”, “fuck”, “damn”, and “motherfucking” followed by “#NaNoWriMo” for most of the month. Apologies in advance.
