Tomorrow NaNoWriMo starts, that’s national novel writing month for those not used to acronyms. I have always wanted to write a novel, or at least some sort of book, and I though taking parting NaNoWriMo might at least kick start some ideas if nothing else. It’s ironic I guess that I’ll be spending evenings and weekend writing, given that I’ve failed to write here as much as I used to.. maybe it will kick start that as well!!

National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1 and the goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30.

Because of the limited writing window, the ONLY thing that matters in NaNoWriMo is output. It’s all about quantity, not quality. The kamikaze approach forces you to lower your expectations, take risks, and write on the fly.

so if nothing else… I hope to generate some ideas for “that book thats in all of us”.. if you want to follow my progress.. you can watch at my NaNoWriMo page
