I’m not sure why, but I’ve signed up for National Novel Writing Month this year.
I did it in 2001 and 2002, but I gave it a miss last year. However, this year will be the first year I’m doing it with a job to tend to as well.
The working title is “Hello Dr Warez” (no comma – yet) and I’ve already written the first 1666 section. Only 29 more of those to do. It’s going pretty well. So far I have four main characters, and a few minor ones (including the mysterious Dr Warez – or is he? Etc).
This time around Robyn is writing it in the third person because in the past she got annoyed when people mistook first-person narrative for the truth and said stupid stuff like, “Oh, I didn’t know you dropped out of law school.”
Ok, so in a month or so I ought to have a semi-decent novel-like piece of writing. 50,000 words or so that will hopefully make sense in some way.
