nanowrimo and nablopomo

From tomorrow, 1st November, I'll be 'taking part' in two things:

One (which requires participants to blog daily) is easy, since I blog daily anyway:

The other is more challenging, but I'm sure will be fun: write a 50,000 word novel in one month, starting Nov 1 with a deadline of midnight Nov 30, 2006. November looks like it will be a very busy month with work & projects to do, launches & screenings to have ... but somewhere in the midst of it all I'll find (or make) space to do the Nanowrimo. It will mean being disciplined, setting aside some time daily to write at top speed without thinking or stopping to change anything. That, to me, is the fun of it, because I tend to write like that a lot of the time, where 'nothing matters' and you end up with things you could never have thought of if you were thinking. Stream of consciousness ...

There are different genres they give you, under which you can classify your novel: literary fiction, horror, sci fi, romance, chick lit, etc. I''ve classified mine as "Other" ... and so far I have a simple idea for it (which will unfold as I go along). The working title is "The Daisy Chain".

until the public sees
boys--in--boys out.
