Have I gone mad? I'm considering doing this:
National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30.
That's about six pages, or 1700 words, per day. They say It's all about quantity, not quality, which could be good practice for a perfectionist. On the other hand, it sometimes takes me nearly a day to do one Watermark post (especially on Fridays.)
I've never considered writing a novel, and have no idea what my novel might be about. I don't know that my energy would support such an endeavor. Most starters don't finish, though, so there would be no shame in that.
What do you think? Are any of my readers doing this?
