Let's write novels

| 4 Comments

creative perspectivesHurry, hurry! It's not too late to sign up for Nanowrimo, National Novel Writing Month. It kicks off on November 1 and runs for 30 days. Your goal is to write a 50,000 word novel. It doesn't have to be a good novel, just has to be finished.

It's a sustained exercise in creativity. Last year 25,000 people started and 3,500 of them completed their novels. The goal this year is 40,000 participants and 5,000 "winners." There's no prize but the pleasure of writing and the thrill of completion. That's enough reward for me.

I signed up yesterday and I'm completely unprepared--no plot, no characters, no clue. But I've been doing my finger limbering exercises and I can pump out 2,000 words a day. I know I can. So get ready, get set, go write a novel!

I hope you will post chapters as you go along. Your writing is phenomenal:)

OK, I'm in. Why? I don't know. Thanks for bringing this madness to my attention.

Here's your plot: Bush wins the election, Al Qaeda uses the 350 tons of explosives they got out of Iraq to set off explosions across the US, and civil war breaks out between the I-told-you-so Democrats and the God-speaks-through-Bush Republicans.

Pete. It's supposed to be fiction.
