I just did something really crazy – I signed up for NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month. This is an amazing and insane event, starting November 1st, 00.01, ending November 30th, 23.59. In that time, every participant is expected to write a novel of 50.000 words.

The thing itself is insane. In my case, having to look for a place to stay and a job make it even more insane, although I’m hoping to achieve both things before November 1st, so I can really give this a go. I very much want to! It’s going to be a blast! People all around the world, writing just for the fun of it and with the goal of producing as many words as possible, however bad or ludicrous or in need of editing. All that will happen later – November is dedicated to putting the words down. I can’t wait for it to start.

Anyone going to join me? 🙂
