The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel by the end of November. Honestly, this is something I’ve wanted to do for years, but I’m going to do it this year. For real! I mean it!
No really, anything I say on this website is a pretty freaking solid promise.
NaNoWriMo is short for… National Novel Writing Month? That’s kind of silly, because it’s International, but whatever. There’s a website where you can sign up and all that stuff, but forget that. I can do this on my own! I don’t need yo’website!
I mean, I say that now, but just wait until all the ideas I came up with over the last two weeks turn into a “novel” short of 20,000 words. I don’t have much to write here, except to declare that I’m doing this, and to drop the title of my little novel: The Phoenix and The Marshall.
It’s going to be a sci-fi tale of two women, with a fairly wild-western premise. That’s the idea at least. I’m going to take a page from George R.R. Martin’s book and do that whole limited-perspective, point-of-view character thing.
And yeah, for somebody who’s declaring that they’re going to write a novel, this is pretty horridly written… but cut me some slack. It’s almost 3AM and I’m too busy listening to Wale to give a care!
