I first heard about the National Novel Writing Month about two years ago. The idea is to write 50,000 words, a novel, in a month. I filed it away under “great ideas that I should, but will never, do” right next to “running a marathon.” Jarrad over at Veritography just told me that Michael Crichton wrote novels while he was in medical school (Harvard, no less).
In the month of November, I have: four exams, a research paper to finish, a Student’s Guide to Grenada to edit, tshirts to sell, and 50,000 words to write. Should be fun.
Here’s to committing to a bad idea, but in the write spirit. topher.
