After a week or so of deliberation I have decided to participate in National Novel Writing Month in November. Inspired by StrugglingWriter who is also participating and swung in no small way by the involvement of a certain fantasy writer I occasionally blog about.
The idea is simple, the best ones usually are, you have one month – November – to write a full first draft of no less than 50,000 words by midnight of 30th November in whatever time-zone you’re located. As I have a bit of time off work that month as well as two long flights I thought I’d give it a go.
This of course also puts pressure on me to finish Priest as soon as possible. Another good thing. And of course I also need to get G to read “This hard land” in a bid to help me decide if I can do anything with that particular turkey.
So that will be me, in November, drinking far too much coffee and pounding away at my keyboard – no change there then. I think I have an idea lined up…I hope I have an idea lined up…oh dear, what have I got myself into?
