Thursday WildCard: NaNoWriMo!

 

nano

That’s right, NaNoWriMo. It stands for National Novel Writing Month. Have you ever wanted to write your own novel? Even in a passing “I’d never have the time to do that” kind of way?

If so then here’s your chance. Participate in the 1 month national attempt to write a 50,000 word novel. This may sound insane but it works out to 1,667  words a day.

On a slow day I type 40 words per minute so in pure typing speed it should take me at most 42 minutes a day. (I work this out every year to psych myself up.)

Of course the part that makes it crazy is that you aren’t taking 50,000 words of dictation in a month, you are writing a novel, the whole thing, with a beginning, middle and end.

If this description makes you smile, then you need to go to NaNoWriMo.org right now, and join me in the attempt.

Make sure you sign up before Nov 1st, because it starts promptly at 12:01 am.
