A Novel in a Month??

I'm going to try National Novel Writing Month this year.

This should be interesting, as I usually only write when I get free time between work and family, my usual writing time for a first draft is around four years. (Well, it was four for the first one, and it's been about ten months for An Uwanted Apprentice at 34,000 words so far...)

I'll post my progress here in November, and we'll see how I do! I'll also post excerpts, that should be interesting....

  1. Good luck! I've had lots of friends do Nanowrimo over the years. Even if they burn out halfway, they're still pleased with the amount of work they managed to do. The main thing is to have a clear story idea and a decent outline before you start. All the prewriting stuff, you know. :-)
