NaNoWrimo

I've been thinking about doing NaNoWrimo for the last three or four years, but never got around to it. After hearing that fellow Swansea blogger, Chris, is planning on giving it a go, I think I'll have a bash, too.

NaNoWrimo is just for fun, but I think it has a serious purpose too - it helps instill discipline, and forces you to write at least 2,000 words per day during the month of November. I think you can plot your novel in advance, but you mustn't start writing it until November 1st. I have a germ of an idea. It's nothing very serious. After all, no-one expects a NaNoWrimo novel to be good. I've set up a separate blog in readiness for it, called SiaNoWrimo, and will post all chapters and musings on chapters to it, starting in November. Now all I need to do is to remember to sign up in October.

Good luck with the treadmill. 2thou a day is hard - I've done it but not for thirtyone consecutive days. There are those days when five hundred is a triumph.
I look forward to seeing the result, it most certainly requires discipline.

Thanks, Aileni. I'm already wondering if I have the discipline and stamina.
