Has anyone completed a novel in a month? I suppose, I’ll give it a shot. I mean, since I’m already rocking a full beard and mustache, I can’t participate in either No-Shave November or Mo-vember; I might as well participate in NaNoWriMo…I guess.
According to the official site, you need to complete 50,000 words by the end of the month (or as early as the 20th). That’s 12,5000 words a week or 1,666 and two-thirds words a day (not sure how you write two-thirds of a word, but okay).
It’s probably easier than it sounds…as long as you commit to writing every day and don’t slack off. So, I’ll probably only get to about 10 words. Eh, we’ll see what happens. After all, who wouldn’t stay inspired while writing about Jedi Knights riding dinosaurs?
Until the muse finds me though, I’ll just stay chained to my computer and stare at the blank screen.
Hopefully, the other participants are having better luck catching their muse. Do they leave honey out? Raisins? What do you bait a muse-trap with? (The complete, annotated works of William Shakespeare?)
