Registrations for November’s National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) opened yesterday. Last year 42,000 people signed up, and 6,000 made it to the 50,000-word requirement.

I’ve wanted to do this for years, but always had too much time on my hands. You need serious time constraints to turn out novel in a month—otherwise you’d fuss with every line.

This year, I’m tempted to sign up. Anybody in?

  1. I’m in. I think. Knock wood. I completed it when I did it 2 years ago. And now it’s time to write the next one. It took me 1-2 hours a day x 5 days a week for the month to churn out the required 50,000 words. I did not stop to edit or think. I just wrote. And it was wonderful to realize that I really could do it.

    Are you in?


  2. I hope so, Dave. By November 20th, I’ll be searching Flickr for pirated images to turn it into a pop-up book. Or maybe a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure after 4,000 words.
