As some of you may already know, I intend to participate in this year’s NaNoWriMo. In case you have no idea what that is, here’s a little explanation: NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month and is an event that takes place every November all over the world. In those 30 days you are supposed to write a novel with at least 50,000 words. Also, you are not allowed to write a single word for the story before November 1 and there is a time limit of maximum one month for plotting and character development. (If you want more information on the project and how to participate yourself, please click here!)
You probably think this is crazy. “How could a person write a whole book in just one month?”, but let me tell you this: it can be done! In fact, very famous novels such as The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde or Fight Club have been written in much less time. Yet, I would not exactly call myself a writer and NaNoWriMo will definitely take up a lot of time. I’m just really happy that it’s more about quantity rather than quality. Nonetheless, this means my blog might suffer a little in terms of regular blog posts, but I hereby promise to still write about the two-part finale of Doctor Who, and after finally catching up with the latest of episodes of Downton Abbey, about that as well. If you are interested in hearing about my writing ideas and my general progress on NaNoWriMo, let me know in the comments below and I will blog about that as well. And last but not least, if you are participating in NaNoWriMo and you still want a writing buddy, don’t hesitate to add me! Click here for that!
Wish me luck for reaching 50,000 and tell me what you think about my plan to participate in this ludicrous event!
