Yikes! I have signed up for NaNoWriMo this year. For those of you who are not familiar the term, it is a challenge to write a novel in November – National Novel Writing Month.
I don’t know whether the novel will be good, but I can write 50,000 words of drivel in a month. It will give me another novel to edit next year.
My plan is a ‘character driven plot.’ I have lots of ‘people’ that I am going to put together and see what happens. My first novel was based on a situation and half way through I knew the end would never work. My protagonist had evolved and would never have been capable of what I had in mind.
In real life people constantly amaze me so I shouldn’t be surprised when my imaginary ones do too. Is anyone else having a go this year?
