NaNoWriMo

Well, it's November again. Month of Thanksgiving, turkey, that horrible "Black Friday" and of course, National Novel Writing Month.

I'm NaNo-ing again this year, and so my posting schedule will be much slower. I have the pre-set goal of about 1700 words per day for my novel, and while that doesn't sound like a lot, it can be discouraging, when it's an every day thing, and you have other things to take care of like yard work, and helping kids with homework, and the myriad other things that life throws at you.

This year's NaNo is an anime-style, comedic aliens come to earth adventure. At least, that's what's planned. If you ever played "Teen-agers from Outer Space" then you'll have an idea of what I'm talking about. It's not serious, it's very silly, over the top and farcical. I dont' honestly know how funny it will end up being, because I can't draw, so everything will be written out! And, well, I have a sort of odd sense of humour, that not everyone understands. I guess, it'll be funny to me, but I can't promise it'll amuse anyone else.

That's not the point, though. The point is, to write, to get those stories out and just actually enjoy the act of writing. Not enough people write any more, and even if it's just absolute rubbish, you're writing! I know I write a lot of rubbish, but it still feels good to write.

If you're NaNo-ing this year, Good luck! Keep me posted with your progress, or add me on your network. If you're not, well, bear with those of us who are, as we slowly drive ourselves mad this month.

Have a wonderful weekend!
