NaNoWriMo 2012

Is anyone taking part this year? It'll be a real challenge for me but I've always wanted to have a go so I registered last week.

 

There's a good chance I’ll not have access to our laptop when I’m home on account of my darling other half needing it most of the time for work, so I’ll need to figure something out (I may need to dig out my library membership if all else fails!) but still, I’m looking forward to it 🙂

Re: NaNoWriMo 2012

Sorry I missed this post. Yes I am doing it for the second year. It is much easier this year. Sales of last years book while not even remotely spectacular have been steady. I might make enough to erm buy something small, very small

It's hard work! I am pretty sure I am never reaching the 50 K word limit by the end of November, but I'll persevere 😉

Re: NaNoWriMo 2012

1500 words to go. I won't have finished th book but it is so much easier this year, once you know you can do it it becomes so much easier.

 

Best of the reviews of last years book so far :

 

 

guido rated it 4 of 5 stars false

This book managed to keep me captivated right to the end, after a difficult start. Although the storyline can be followed quite easily, the underlying subject matter is not. I have to be careful about categorising it - my grasp of philosophy is most tenuous.
 
*******
I think it is a decent review of what I think is a hard book even though I wrote - as it deals with the nature of time and death.

Crossed the magic line at 11:30pm last night. Suddenly pressure gone but book not finished.

Re: NaNoWriMo 2012

That's great, well done! Do you have much more to do to get it completed?

Sounds quite intense (to write I mean), is the subject matter in this latest novel similar or have you gone for something different?

Re: NaNoWriMo 2012

It was hard to write yes. This one deals with deep themes but is character driven - I'm not sure how much further I have to go as the four main characters seem to have ideas of their own!

How are you getting on?

Re: NaNoWriMo 2012

Getting on OK, but I am sure I will not reach the word threshold by the end of the week. I'll check my word total this evening and let you know. It'll be shamefully low though!

Did you find this one easier to write? [I guess that's a relative question - it's never an easy task!]

Re: NaNoWriMo 2012

Words have been counted, the results are in, and

 

....................................................[drum roll] ....................................................

 

 

I have about 28.000 words.

If only I had another month and I'd reach the target 😉
