For those who haven't heard of it, Nanowrimo is National Novel Writing Month. Participants attempt to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. It started in the USA (hence the "National" in the title), but has since spread around the world, and Cambridge has a large and active chapter. See the above link for FAQ's and other information.
|The honourable emblem of Nanowrimo.|
I've entered six times before, and reached the 50,000 word target four times previously, in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2013. The novels in question are... not great. Fifty thousand words in a month forces you to concentrate on quantity instead of quality. They were a lot of fun to write though.
Cute Cat Friday will appear as normal, and I'll get back to other blogging in the first week of December; or maybe the second, depending how long I need to recover from my fictioneering marathon.
If I see something which I absolutely cannot restrain myself from ranting about online, I might break blogging silence to do so; but it would have to be pretty spectacular. Otherwise, I will spend November in frenzied typing of another Nanowrimo manuscript.
