I am attempting to complete this year’s NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. I have 30 days to write a 50,000 word novel, and I really don’t have that much time to do it. As of this moment, I’ve written 200 words. Even though I have just started, I’ve realised that writing a novel is much, much harder work than writing a blog post. I thought writing a blog that has well over 100,000 words is pretty good practice. It’s not. The style of writing is completely different. I wouldn’t say I have writer’s block. I’m writing right now, aren’t I? Actually, I’m writing this quite quickly. I wrote 200 words of my novel in about 45 minutes. Maybe just starting the novel is hard work. It is a prologue I’m working on right now, after all. That’s mainly background information, no story.
Anyway, is anyone else participating in NaNoWriMo? If you are, then go ahead and add me as a writing buddy. My page is right here.
