By The Way

I'm writing a novel.

That's interesting dear.

TimT said...

Why thankyou, dear.

If you don't mind my asking, sir, what is this novel about?

I myself am writing an autobiography: I am not sure who it shall be about, yet.

Vikki said...

Is this for Nanowrimo? Because the date of commencement is rather suspicious. ;)

TimT said...

Yes, no, maybe, maybe not. I wouldn't know myself. I wrote an article about a week ago and I thought that I rather liked where it was going, and decided to take it a little further.

I had a whole bunch of other ideas that I hadn't used, and thought they sounded suitable.

Thus, this silly project was born. I went over to the nanowrimo website, and signed up: I was disappointed to find that they didn't seem to have any publication engines on their website, and so decided to put something up on blogger.

Vikki said...

It's an interesting read-- I'll certianly be watching it to see where it goes.

I signed up for Nanowrimo, but I'm really stuck for any ideas. Short story ideas, I have. But novels? No. But it's there... just in case.

TimT said...

I'm not fussed if it doesn't meet the deadline; I'm just doing it this way to try and get a bit of glory from the nanowrimo guys.

Caz said...

Can anyone explain the whole "Nanowrimo" thing to me, preferably in no more than 30 words; can't be bothered doing my own research.

Thanking you in advance.

(Don't you just HATE it when people put that at the end of emails; letters; posts on blogs? So fucking pathetic and twee, and oozing with fraudulent manners and not at all subtle pressure.)

TimT said...

That's why I'm glad you put it in the middle, Caz. Nanowrimo is short for 'national novel writing month'. It started in America, but anyone can get involved. You sign up and for the next month you write like crazy. The aim is to achieve 50,000 words, and at the end, you get a shiny gold web-certificate.

How joy, how very joy, eh?
