Shortly after coming across the National Novel Writing Month site last night, I commited myself to writing a 50,000 word novel in 30 days.
A little number crunching for perspective:
- Number of pages: About 200
- Words per day: 1,667
- Words per hour: 69
- Seconds per word: 52
- Number of Words in this weblog’s 11 months of entries: 22,300
I don’t know anyone. I joined too late for the Seattle gathering and the little single-threaded Yahoo message board for the project is practically unnavigable & overwhelmed with noise. Oh well.
Though writing doesn’t start until Thursday, I’d better start cooking up some ideas.
