In just one week, National Novel Writing Month begins!
NaNoWriMo is a magical time that comes but once a year, when hope, insanity, and the support of the book-writing Internets combine to make everyone think that it's a good idea to write an ENTIRE FREAKING 50,000-WORD NOVEL IN 30 DAYS. In other words, it's amazing. No sooner will you hang up your sexy burrito costume on October 31, than you'll pick up your pen/laptop/pretentious quill and inkpot November 1, to start crafting your masterpiece.
Do you have what it takes to
maturely write 1,667 words a day thus easily reaching your goal panic-write 25,000 words in one week, delete them all, then spend the remainder of November cry-typing a badly planned autobiography of Benjamin Franklin's cat? Are you ready to bore everyone with the world-building details of BamTown, the setting for your cybernovel? Can you HANDLE giving up your customary four-day Thanksgiving-pie coma in favor of NOT eating so much pie that you're unable to stay awake, much less work on your NaNo novel?
The answer to all these questions is: if I can do it, you can, too. Starting November 1, let's take this crazy train to literary greatness/Internet bragging rights together! I want every Sparkler and Mankler to have the opportunity to stumble outside at midnight on November 30, scream "I TOLD YOU I COULD DO IT!" to the stars, then fall into the dreamless sleep of the successful NaNo noveler.
See you back here in a week, fellow NaNo novelers!
Who else is doing NaNoWriMo? Don't leave me hanging!
