NaNoWriMo, the abbreviation for National Novel Writing Month is a project where writers around the globe gear up to finish a 50,000 word novel in a month, in November. Sounds like a mayhem, right?
Then, its exactly the reason to dive in.
After much consideration, I have decided to dive in and see what really becomes of me. The target is to write 1,667 words a day, well, in consistent with the everyday life and the gruesome fall semester when November is the toughest month with a pile of assignments and paperworks to do. And one thousand five hundred twenty three other things!
There are too many reasons to give up, only one to try. Murphy’s Law is always in action. Things that are bound to go wrong, will go wrong. Thus, there is no perfect time. No perfect reason. Only time, only now.
A good-enough novel violently written now is better than a perfect novel meticulously written never. – Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic
My target is not the 50,000 word mark, my aim is to get that story rolling, no matter how horrible or stupid.
And if I fail, it’ll just add up in that huge bin of things I tried.
The world needs your novel. – NaNoWriMo
Til’ the next post!
