As every other wannabe writer, I have a whole drawer full of ideas for books, both novels and theological fiction.It has always been my aspiration to put these ideas into action and publish some of them. As every other wannabe writer I have been putting this of for years.
So I have decided this year to take part in NaNoWriMo, an international writing project that is much like a marathon in fiction writing. This means that for the next month (the month of November 2011) I will try to write my first novel. to find the time for this I will not be blogging, I will not be checking Facebook, I will not go on tumblr and I will not keep up with any personal correspondence. It is a bit like going down in a sub for a month or locking yourself in the basement.
I am hoping to hit 1000 words in 2 hours of writing per day and finish half a novel (approx 30.000 words, a short novel is 60-90.000 words) in this first attempt at NaNoWriMo (The official target is to hit 50.000 words but I think that would cost me my job, my sanity and my family so I will start carefully).
Please cheer me on but don’t be alarmed if it seems as if I have fallen of he face of the earth. I will try to post daily word count updates, on my blogs but I won’t promise I can keep that up as I’ll need every single free second to succeed at this.
