This year I'm going to be a part of National Novel Writing Month! It's when you try to write a novel/50,000 in one month! I know it sounds crazy, but with an official website and the support of your peers, people really do pull it off. Once you've sweated out 50,000 words, you can polish the novel until it shines. At least you have the words plunked out and actual paragraphs and chapters to work with.
It's a great idea.
My novel for NaNoWriMo is titled, "Desert Nomad". I'm currently working on the outline and blurb, but I know its going to be a science fiction/fantasy story about a woman who crash lands her escape pod on a remote desert planet. There's going to be sand pirates, desert worms, and of course a romantic interest along the lines of a Madmax type of male character.
Who else is going to brave the trenches of NaNoWriMo? If you are, please friend me: My username is authoraubrie. What kind of novel are you planning to write?
