I’m currently getting ready to participate in NaNoWriMo 2011. I have been busy dealing with “The Real World” so far, and therefore I haven’t actually started my novel yet. In fact, I don’t even have an idea yet.
The lack of ideas is, however, not a big problem for me. I think I’ve started before November 5 only once in the past 5 years of NaNoWriMo (the only year I actually had an idea before November 5 as well). In all honesty, though, Life has made things a bit more complicated again this year (third straight year of complicated Novembers).
If I could count the words I’ve written in tech-related forums posts, I probably already have well-over 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo 2011. Hmm… maybe I’ll write a novel all in forums-post format. It’s kind of like iambic pentameter, epic poetry and haiku combined, especially if you squint a little while reading it.
Or, well, maybe not.
In any event, I’m hoping to have some kind of idea by the weekend. In the meantime, I was interviewed for the Office of Letters and Light’s blog, so you should check it out!
Anyone else doing NaNoWriMo this year? Let me know in the comments!
