I did it! I really did! I signed up for Nano 2012!
Nano stands for National Novel Writing Month and the goal is to write a 50K novel (of course you can do more!) in 30 days.
Here's a link in case you would like to join me in such a crazy endeavour: National Novel Writing Month. Oh yes, I know it's crazy. Specially with our schedule. But I'm looking forward to the experience and the craziness and the results.
I've been reading quite a bit on how to prepare for it. There is tons of advice out there for newbies and even experienced Nano participants. From what I've gathered, between the dire predictions of 30 sleepless nights and completely alienating one's family, it's a good thing to have as loose an outline as one is comfortable with, some character development and all the provisions required to hunker down for 30 days of absolute madness. Sounds like a jolly good time, doesn't it?
So how about it? Are you planning to participate? Why or why not? And if you are, are you a newbie? Do you have any tips to share with us?
I love hearing from you guys!
