Have any of you ever participated in National Novel Writing Month? I’m about to sign up and throw down 50,000 words in 30 days. Have you noticed my infrequent posts here and think, “No way. Not even if he had a team of monkeys could this hack hope to push out a novel in 30 days.”
Well, aside from being a Mrs. Poopie Pants (or Mr., depending on whether you’re packing below the Mason Dixon line), I think you are underestimating my abilities. The novel doesn’t have to make sense! See, this contest is all about quantity; quality be damned!
Hell, I pound out somewhere in the vicinity of 20,000 words a week between this blog and my day job… and I’d say almost 15 of those words make sense even without context! Damn skippy!
So, if any of you have ever participated, could you drop me a line… you know, let me know what your experiences were?
