NaNoWriMo: Giving it a go ...

For those of you who may not be aware, this month is National Write a Novel in a Month. Here is the link to the super-official spectacular website.

NaNoWriMo

The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days and 30 nights. I with some of my other blog-buddies have taken up the challenge. The idea of writing a novel, of pushing through that process, has always intrigued me. So off I go to write and see what comes of it all.

Though I'm more than slightly certain this won't be the "next big bestseller", for me, this is all about the process and the thrill of finishing what I've set out to do.

I have no plan. Very unlike me. I'm going to write a pure stream of thought and treat this journey as though I'm driving from point A to point B which is only 50,000 words away.

So yeah, it'll probably suck :) But I intend to have fun with it. Wish me luck!

Hey, hey. Sounds like we're on the same page or at least heading in the same direction.

I kid about writing a bestseller but honestly I'm aiming for a spot about 3 inches above the gutter.

I'm ditto to everything you posted.

Good luck, Rob. Let loose and what you create will be a hilarious hoot.

Aye Shaddy .. as Captain Jack Sparrow would say, "we have an accord".

Ok, that wasnt't a great time to reference Jack but hey he's a pretty cool character, lol

Luck is bein' wished :) However, you are very good with your writing, so I don't think you'll need it.
