NanoWriMo 2016

I have mixed feelings about (Inter)National Writing Month. On one hand, I’m of the opinion that writing isn’t just something any one can pick up and do. It takes a lot of time to study the craft and the implication that all it takes is time is a little insulting. (We don’t have national Plumbers month, or National Doctors month, right?)

But on the other hand, having a month where you focus on writing over 1000 words a day is good. The key to finishing your work, I think, is not so much writing every day but wanting to write every day. And NanoWriMo does that, it helps you to want to write.

I doubt that I’ll get anywhere near the 50,000 words that I’d need to poop out to win. But hopefully I can get somewhere between 10-30 thousand words done. This is a project that has been mulling in my head since January and I keep putting it off. It will be good to put some time into it and see where it can go.
