NaNoWriMo 09

So, who knows about NaNoWriMo? It stands for National Novel Writing Month. That’s right! Along with a few thousand other crazy people, I set out at the beginning of November to write a 50 000 word novel before the end of the month.

Well, that might sound awful, or it might not sound too bad. But I started on the 7th November. I was 10 000 words behind everyone. I had absolutely no plot. No characters or everything.

So I started with a name. Anna. And I built a book around her.

Well, look at me now: I finished it on the 22nd and I’m onto writing something else. I’m setting myself a challenge: write at least 40 000 words before Christmas Day.

Who thinks I can do it?
