I should do NaDissWrimo :)
Hey, define it how you like. Get 50,000 words done in November and you'll get a computer print out certificate.
Is there any provision for quality? 50,000 words edited or first crappy draft? Is that how fast people write fiction? That is fucking nuts.
Also, I can't believe they still use that name after all these years. I feel embarrassed just hearing it my head.
The advantage of NaNoWriMo is that, if you get to the 50,000 word mark, you "win," where as if you do NaDissWriMo, you don't automatically win if you get to the required length.
There's no winning with this one, it's true.
What? I miss you! But no. Not doing Nanowrimo.
I'm lurking around, reading, but not writing much here anymore. I may write a novel this month though.
DO IT! I would love to read an atthesametime novel.
I am going to be either the angel or devil over the other shoulder (not sure which) and argue that you stick to running instead!
i want to. and mean to. but who knows!
Do it! I might actually complete the thing if others are watching.
I was considering it. I tried it three or four years ago, and my computer broke down halfway through after it got dropped by movers, and so I never wound up finishing it.
I should say that i'm considering it only now after seeing a number of my friends decide they were going to start it. I've only started htinking about it in the last 24 hours, which means I have nothing--no ideas, plans, whatever.
have nothing--no ideas, plans, whatever.</I. Sounds perfect, get to it.
I'll write at least 50,000 words in memos asking people to do shit they should already be doing. That probably doesn't count, though, although it would be an avant garde novel.
Are you writing something? You should! I want to read a novel by you.
I want to write a novel. I'm going to try, but my job is so goddamn insane it is going to be hard to find the time.
The idea is a novel about my main interests of the moment - real estate, crime, and hasidic brooklyn.
real estate, crime, and hasidic brooklyn
that sounds good!!
It'd be conceptual poetry! Like this.
