In a fit of optimism (read, insanity) I’ve registered for the annual writing marathon at NaNoWriMo — or National Novel Writing Month.
The goal: fifty thousand words in thirty days. Now, it’s more or less expected that much (all) of the participants’ writing will be sheer (utter, complete, total) garbage. The idea is to get into the habit of writing… to prime the pump, as it were.
The event starts in just about twenty-four hours. I have no characters drawn, no plots… er, plotted and no particular idea where my writing might go. I’m intrigued, but I remain on the fence…
Anybody out there tried NaNoWriMo in prior years? Was it worth it?
