to the official site. Notice the word counter. Notice the humongous number.
Is that cool or what?
I've never done it.
I only heard about it last year, and I couldn't do it then. I want to do it this year. However, something tells me that this November is going to be a bad month for me. School, burnout from school, Thanksgiving (who picked November, anyway?) and work are among the possible reasons, although I don't have anything really concrete and I'll probably try it anyway come November.
But there's nothing stopping me from having my own personal Novel Writing Month. And it's going to be this March. Why? Well, I'm impatient. And I want another novel. And I don't know what's going to happen in November, but I have a pretty good idea what's going to happen this March - with the exception of work, I'm going to have free time. And March has 31 days, which gives me an advantage. :)
So, my friends, I will be writing 50,000 words this March, as well as attempting to keep up this blog on a somewhat regular basis.
I'm a little scared. I've never written anything that fast before. But I think I can do it. I don't KNOW I can do it, because I've never done it, but I think I can, and that's enough. I will be keeping you posted - I'll add a widget or something to the blog to show my progress, and I'll post updates, learning experiences, highlights and potentially (no promises) a regular post.
I'm so stoked. This is going to be awesome. It might be insane. But I want that novel, I want it by April, and by darn, I'm going to write it.
