If you see me posting here at all in the month of March scold me vehemently unless I’ve said something like “I got my 1666.6666 words done today!” That’s right, I’ve joined the cult of Chris Baty, meaning I’ve recently finished reading No Plot? No Problem!: A Low-Stress, High-Velocity Guide to Writing a Novel in 30 Days. The official National Novel Writing Month begins in November, but I can’t wait that long. Instead I will (hopefully!) spend the merry, merry month of March engaged in writing a 50,000 word novel (an average of 1666.6666 words or so per day) The result will most certainly be a novel fit for kindling, but at least it’s a starting point and, with oil prices so high, extra kindling could certainly come in handy. So, my dear 3 readers, be vigilant! If you see me posting here without the above mentioned phrase feel free to kick my ass. Metaphorically speaking.
