For the uninitiated, it is a internet thing where one aims to write a 50,000 word novel from beginning to end all in a month. The aim is not craft a masterpiece but on the contrary to trade in all your pretensions and self-censorship in exchange for a fast and furious adventure into the unexpected. I can’t recommend it enough. You can never predict where you’ll end up but it’s great fun getting there.
Third time around for me. I sort of succeeded in 2004. I wrote 50k but there quite a few holes in my story (which still haven’t been patched) Last year, I tried to work in strictly linear fashion and perhaps as a consequences I failed miserably, falling short by 30,000 words (still working on that one too) This time I’m going to make it or I’ll eat my words!
