Ready, Set, Write!

It’s November 2011, which could only mean three things:

First, the release of Uncharted 3.

Second, it’s nearly 2012.

Third, Nanowrimo.

National Novel Writing Month is, you guessed it, November. It provides a good platform for anyone who doesn’t have the time or skill required for novel writing to, indeed, write a novel. I guess I’d probably fall into at least one of those categories, so I decided to give it a go this year.

Now, I’ve never attempted Nanowrimo before, I’ll admit that. That’s my excuse for not being totally clued up on the rules. You see, it’s four days into November and I’ve yet to actually write one word of the aforementioned time-neglected bad novel that I plan to be the pinnacle of my sparkling writing career.

Also, it is advised that you write roughly 1667 words a day in order to get 50,000 by midnight on the 30th. We’ve already established that I’ve pretty much missed that target so, to readdress the balance, I will be writing 2000 words each day. Starting from Thursday.

Yes, not only am I giving away my schedule and being open about my blatant disregard for the carefully constructed rules, I’m also saying I am not even going to start for the best part of another week. How very postmodern of me.

You’ll be able to see the end product on my website, which can be found here for those who’ve not visited before. I’m not promising it’ll be there, I’m just saying if I succeed there is a distinct chance that’s where you’ll find the proof on the 1st of December.

What else is funny? Maybe how I’ve just wasted close to 400 of a potential 2000 word target for today by randomly talking about the process of it on my blog. I’m using words to complain about how there’s not enough time in the day to write more words, when it wouldn’t be the case if I tried writing the right words for once. What’s that? You want a story synopsis for my novel idea? Well in that case…
