Are you doing NaNoWriMo this year?
NaNoWriMo - the initiative to get everybody writing a book in November via a commitment to at least 1k a day - is not only great fun, it had wonderful community spirit and it's an excellent example of how books can be written. E.g. by just doing it! There's no magic, honest! Actually the magic comes later via patience and editing and being unfazed by a dog's dinner draft! But that's another story.
Since I'm on the edges of a new book I figured I would embark on the November NaNo adventure. And then I realised I was ready a week early and by waiting I'd miss out on over 10k so I've dived in and already started.
But I am a huge fan of NaNoWriMo and have done it several times; it's great fun. Hopefully I won't flag halfway through November by doing this solo. Actually, I'm determined not to and to just keep going.
So so far I'm at 9k. And there are tangled bits of plot wool already.
Are you taking the plunge?
