NaNoWriMo 2011

The National Novel Writing Months, or NaNoWriMo for short, is coming up!

Let me give you a quick rundown of what all this is about.
Starting November 1st, you get exactly one months to write a novel of 50.000 words or more. Write that much within the aforementioned timespan, and a winner is you!

Some friends of mine participated before, and it got me interested. Sadly, I haven’t heard them about it yet, so I fear they will not be participating.

This is a pretty big challenge for me, seeing as how I do not have a single preplanned storyline in my head right now.
I don’t know what I’ll be doing. Wether I’ll be going with Beasts (which I actually planned on restarting anyway, due to very, very shitty character building) or that I will do a Homestuck-esque written story. The latter will require reader input every now and then, and may or may not be written in second person. The reader input makes it a lot more interesting for you guys, too.

So I was wondering, will any of you be participating? WE COULD BECOME WRITEBUDDIES!

    I’m too lazy to participate, but good luck with it!

    You should post updates of your story.

    I’ve been wanting to do NaNoWriMo for a few years now but I have no ideas that long. All I’m currently doing is trying to summon up the will to finish the five-to-ten-page short stories floating around my head.

    Hahahaha, no. My writing is shit.

    But good luck to you.

    Woah, that sounds intense, I wish I had the time to write a novel in one month. Definitely interested in hearing your progress as you go along though!

    LOL I’ve heard of this, but I won’t be participating. I would suggest maybe going with Beasts. A Homestuck story type thing could maybe alienate the non-Homestuck fans. As for character development, you shouldn’t really worry about that so early on in the story.
