For the last couple of years I’ve intended to get involved in the NaNoWriMo event and spend November writing 50 to 60 thousand words on a subject of my choice — fictional of course, and probably SciFi or Fantasy.
Every year something has come up to thwart that intention. And this year ain’t no different. The contract I’m working was extended yet again at the end of September, not for one month as I expected, but for two. I was kinda hoping it was going to finish at October’s end to give me a chance to get involved in NaNoWriMo.
I did consider attempting a story in any case, but there’s always only so much one can do at the end of a day. It’s hard enough sometimes to unscramble my brain long enough to write a 400 – 600 word blog post for Stropp’s World, let alone 1600 – 2000 words. Some nights I’m not even focussed enough to play a game. I was attempting some crafting the other night in EQ2 and found myself nodding off.
What I might do, if I can come up with a idea for a plot, is to write a short story, something that won’t take quite as much effort. Perhaps some fanfic related to a game, we’ll see.
In the meantime, Syp, Ysharros, Stargrace, Scarybooster (who is attempting the task using an iPhone) and a bunch of others are attempting this epic feat. They’re definitely worth watching. No pressure guys!
Good luck to everyone!
