Well, I've done it. I've gone and signed up for NaNoWriMo. That's National Novel Writing Month to you not in the loop.
From WriMo's web site:
What: Writing one 50,000-word novel from scratch in a month's time.
Who: You! We can't do this unless we have some other people trying it as well. Let's write laughably awful yet lengthy prose together.
Why: The reasons are endless! To actively participate in one of our era's most enchanting art forms! To write without having to obsess over quality. To be able to make obscure references to passages from our novels at parties. To be able to mock real novelists who dawdle on and on, taking far longer than 30 days to produce their work.
When: You can sign up anytime to add your name to the roster and browse the forums. Writing begins November 1. To be added to the official list of winners, you must reach the 50,000-word mark by November 30 at midnight. Once your novel has been verified by our web-based team of robotic word counters, the partying begins.
I'm both terrified and invigorated by the prospect of writing again, and with such wild abandon! I have no idea what I'm going to write about, but I have a whole month to plan before November 1st, when the writing actually begins.
Omg what did I get myself into... @_@
