Tomorrow marks the beginning of National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, as it is playfully nicknamed. The premise is that if you commit to write 1,667 words a day for a month, you’ll end up with 50,000 words and a first draft of a novel.
I’m going to do it! Along with over 200,000 other writers worldwide.
Do I know what I’m doing? Not really. But I’ve got a rough idea. And thanks to the incredibly talented Jim Carroll, I have a provocative image that I’ll be using as inspiration:
I know that the novel will be set in a college library and center around a young librarian named Dorothy Watson. I will be publishing my writing for the month here on my blog, so stay tuned!
