A novel in a month
Writing a novel in a month? That's got to be crazy!
Maybe so - but I'm going to hop aboard for National Novel Writing Month, about which more information can be found at http://www.nanowrimo.org/
The goal of the project is quantity, not necessarily quality, but for me, I'm going to use it to power through the start of a new novel project that's been ticking away in the back of my mind and has been resolutely left there while I work on my fantasy novel, my main project.
So, for the next month, I'll be branching out into a modern-day horror novel, a tale of a serial killer and the man who hunts him, and the supernatural bond that ties them together. Not a word has been written yet, but the plot outline is all there in my head, after first percolating up in a roleplaying session a long time back.
Under the working title Fresh Blood, we'll see how far I get, and just what the effects will be of trying to work to that 30-day schedule.
Any fellow writers wanting to join in, consider this a call to join me in a mutual 30-day support group.
Wish me luck!
