Chris mentioned on his blog that he's going to participate in this year's National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). The goal is to write a 50,000-word novel by midnight, local time, on November 30th. The challenge starts 1st November, and I am psyched.
Psyched? Why? Because I have decided to join Chris in this reckless endeavour! Yay us! Who cares about stuff like editing when you can just typetypetypetype the novel you have always dreamt of writing. They say everyone has a story to tell, and this is the chance to just unleash that story inside you. JUST DO IT!
But we're allowed to plan or outline the story before we actually write the thing 1st November.
What should I write?
A melodramatic tale of rock-star vampires?
A tale full of existentialist angst, torrid love affairs, complicated love triangles and spiritual redemption?
Yet another Gabriel Knight fan fiction?
A futuristic occult thriller?
A sugary chick-lit with a lesbian twist?
A sword and sorcery tale about an axe-wielding warrior-woman and her snarky mage companion. Both of them guarding a young child who is the reincarnation of a goddess?
The possibilities are endless!
PS: While the possibilities are endless, knowing me, at least one of the character will eventually end up as a vampire, a werewolf, or dead.
