A Novel Idea
On the last day of November I’ll reach the seemingly significant age of forty, (email me for details regarding where to send flowers etc). As it happens I quite like birthdays and thankfully I’m not someone overly concerned with the passing of time, (well no more than most).
However given the respective dates involved details of National Novel Writing Month have taken on a deal more significance. And although I have had no prior desire to write such a thing, (and perhaps more importantly currently have no ideas about it’s possible content), I might just give it a go. Even more so given some of supporting writing on their website :
“Make no mistake : You will be writing a lot of crap. And that’s a good thing. By forcing yourself to write so intensely, you are giving yourself permission to make mistakes. To forgo the endless tweaking and editing and just create. To build without tearing down.”
That said fifty thousand words in thirty days does appear to be quite a tall order.
