NaNoWriMo 2011

November 27, 2011

For those already not familiar with this obsession, the NaNoWriMo idea (see for yourself at http://nanowrimo.org/) is to write a novel in November. Yes, write 50,000 words including “The End” between 12:01 a.m. November 1 and midnight November 30. Given the severe time crunch created by these specious deadlines, not much attention can be paid to editing. And none to rewriting, unless you’re really fast getting the book out the gate.

Ideally, the result is one extended burst of creative energy resulting in: A Book! In my case, it is an enlargement of the Francis and Sophy Victorian Romance that inspired the one-act play of the same name. A story that spreads across two continents, with rivalries, intrigues, and affaires de coeur.

For me, a wonderfully enlightening process. It only took 22 days of obsession to reach it.
