Last year, I took part in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) which was based around writing 50,000 words in November. It was challenging to say the least trying to write 1,666 words a day and most days I didn’t, meaning I would have to catch up writing over 10,000 words at the weekends. But it was worth it.
Taking part in NaNoWriMo forced me to write at a fast pace, not allowing me any time to over analyze the words of my novel and because of this, it formed structure and took shape. My WIP developed more in November 2011 than it had in the entire year.
So as the end of the year approaches, slowing us all down, we thought there would be nothing more perfect than our own Romaniac HQ writing challenge, to join in with the spirit of things.
During the month of November, we will aim to write 30,000 words, each. That’s 1,000 words a day, (Carol Vorderman has nothing on me!) and lots of coffee!
Now we’ve put it in print, you can hold us to it and check in to see how we’re doing!
Good luck with all of you taking the NaNoWriMo challenge. Let us know how it’s going.
