The reason I haven’t been posting many rambles recently is because I’ve been swamped with work, both on my own website and with school, so the fact that I’ve entered into a challenge to write a 50,000-word novel in a month seems more like a venture into the world of self-harm than a simple test of my writing skills. Nevertheless, I’m making time sacrifices to take part in NaNoWriMo, the National Novel Writing Month. Over a thirty day period, I’ll be writing a full-length novel simply for the pride associated with such a feat. That’s right, I’m writing a crazy-long story for the sake of my ego. Call me crazy if you will.
You can check NaNoWriMo out at the official website here. It’s definitely worth a shot, even if you are coming in three or four days late. Who knows, you might get your mini masterpiece published. If not, at least you get a pretty certificate.
