Hey guys, thought I'd open this up since we're probably all in the planning stage of NaNoWriMo. For those that don't know, November is National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo) for short. Some see it as an attempt to do a novel that they wouldn't otherwise do and some see it as just a fun time waster. I see it as a way to temper my writing by practicing writing a significant amount in a relatively short period of time. I always outline beforehand so it's not a complete mess. As a promise to myself not to write any more "novels" until my WIP is finished, I've decided to do a framed novella, in a way, which is composed of several short stories within. I did this in one of my earlier NaNos to mixed results, but I think it'll be better this time. Here's my synopsis from NaNoWriMo's site. It's called "The Dragon's Tonsil: Tales of a Necrocryptozoologist"(yes, it's a mouthful ) So the basis of the story is that one story will weave throughout a series of many short stories. Some may be really short, some may be longer, but at the end of the day I think I'll have a completed project at around 50K. What are your plans for NaNo? Like to share them here? By the way, I'm PhilipOverby on the NaNoWriMo site.
