It looks like it is that time of the year again, and I haven’t even decided on my novel for this year’s writing contest. I feel that I may end up doing this one by hand, while travelling at sixty miles per hour on a bus, as this year I have a full time job doing web development so this means I get less time for writing. Of course I could do it in the evening, but then I don’t get to burn my own eyes with how terrible my hand writing is. This year the word count will likely be close, but even if I don’t complete my 50,000 challenge, I will be still be grateful that I will end up with a large chunk of a new novel started.
See you in December, and expect a few words wars and sprints, they make writing quickly much more fun, and offer a chance to try ideas that may never have ended up being written otherwise.
EDIT: On a related note, I am disappointed to announce that I didn’t manage to get my first draft of my current medieval by the end of August (its now almost November). I also haven’t yet come up with a title yet. Good news though, is that I have finally got around to resolving the main plot changes to the climax of the story, which means that a few rewritten chapters and general editing and hopefully I will be on my way to completing this eternal project (and then the two sequels I totally haven’t definitely decided whether I’m writing or not). Either way, this is most definitely not a dead project and expect updates on it over the coming weeks (except for the next four weeks because that’s for NaNo).
