NaNoWriMo 2009 has begun. It being the annual, global challenge to write a 50,000 word novel during the month of November, from start to finish. To do so means writing about 2000 words per day, which in theory should be entirely doable. On my first day yesterday I hit 1,792 which isn’t bad going – that’s above the recommended target for the first day of 1667.
My story started out as a pulpy, silly, fun riff on Transformers, but has since mutated into an Iron Giant/King Kong story which is actually a lot more engaging than I’d expect.
I do believe you can follow my progress, if you’re so inclined.
