Three days ago, after an electronic conversation with a friend and intrigued by a spate of Twitter hashtags, I investigated the phenomenon that is #NaNoWriMo.
The premise is simple, from start to finish, you write the first draft for a novel, of 50,000 words, in the month of November.
I signed up forthwith, I do like a challenge, but I realised, with some horror after having done so, that apart from my annual work appraisals I hadn’t written fiction of any sort since I left school, a few years ago*!!
I read through the website a bit and it seems that a lot of people start their planning in September, or October at the latest, so I’m on a learning curve but very much looking forward to it.
I shall keep you updated.
* A large positive integer that I refuse to quantify.
