National Novel Writing Month 2005. And yes, I joined.This is not supposed to happen. Having endured eight full days of extreme boredom at the new workplace has swayed my stand on this.

Unfortunately, I am convinced that the days of boredom will not extend to November. That is why I have been taking such a long time to come to a decision.

And now, it looks like I am willing to give it a try, after all.

So, yes. This year’s Nanowrimo will be my maiden attempt at writing what will be equivalent to a 175-page novel.

I have yet to work out the logistics, though. Should I publish the novel online? Must I create a separate website specifically for it? Would it be wise to create a working timetable that I can refer to? Do I need to keep a few sachets of Nescafe within reach? How can I be assured that I can achieve the 50,000-word target? What if I have to be hauled to a mental institution after all this is over?

We shall see.

  4. Ali – Yeah. Just don’t blame me when I come lunging at you with a knife…

    Nerdook – All the best to you too. :P

    Soporific – Nothing wrong, but it’s certainly something not everyone does on a regular basis. Not everyone writes for a living. ;)

  8. Shom – Maybe I’ll put it up on the net for a limited period of time…

    Mint – Heh. I think it has happened quite a number of times, and he has graciously let it slide… I’m not quite a bright bulb, you know. ;)

    Ecstacy – Nah, I don’t harbour dreams of getting it published into a book, really.
