National Novel Writing Month

A few weeks ago I posted some information about National Novel Writing Month - also known as NaNoWriMo.
Well, I decided to register as an official participant to see if I could indeed write a 50,000 word book during the month of November. What I'm hoping to do is to 'brain storm' a first draft which after a lot of rewriting may be suitable as a BHW. I've never tried anything like this before so it should be interesting!
I'm beginning to put some notes and ideas together prior to the big event which starts at midnight on 31st October.
If you want more information or if you want to have a go yourself, click on the icon on my blog and it will take you through to the official website.
I'll let you know how I get on!


  1. It'll be interesting to hear progress through the month. But isn't making notes and having ideas beforehand cheating!

  2. 'Lee Walker slowly rose to his feet and stared at the bearded hombre who had just called him a cheat.
    "I hope your gun is as fast as your mouth," he snarled.
    "And I hope you can write as much as you talk," shot back Parnham.
    The two wordslingers started to circle the PC that sat between them.....'

    There, that's given me a good start to NaNoWriMo, thanks Ian.

    As far as I am aware of the rules, as long as you do not use material previous written it is perfectly acceptable to make notes, have a title and generally have an dea where you're story is going.

    Now where were we.....

  3. No problem. Glad to have helped. Now, just another 49,950 words to go.
