It's like right now for some people, but it's not like anyone here completes it right? What are your plans?

I'm going to write two sentences but then give up because it's hard.

I'll write a bunch of random short stories and then try to tie them together in the end because I'm lazy.

But then I actually have to write the short stories first...

I would like to write a collaborative novel in a fantasy or sci fi setting...

The plan is to do it on a character basis after developing a setting with the other writers...dunno if such things are allowed in NaNoWriMo

I already got a solid enough idea. Will begin writing tomorrow.

Good luck, fellow writers, and may the odds be ever in your favour.

NaNoWriMo = National Novel Writing Month.

Basically, you try to write a novel in a month.

Lol, not in this thread. If people post them at all, they post it in their own threads or in a separate thread. Since a novel has to be at least 50,000 words, this thread would get very long...

Oh yeah, good point.... I don't think a novel really has to have a concrete number of words. Of Mice and Men doesn't even hit 30,000 words.

I'm at 2000 words but I'll never post it anywhere. I'll probably get tired of it at the 10k mark.

Of Mice and Men is a novella, not a novel.

You just pwned me.

I started the challenge last night, and I think I'm somewhere at the 1000 word mark. For personal uses, I might extend the challenge to Dec. , since that would be 1 month from when I started, but If I can somehow manage to hit the big 50k before that (heck if I meet novella standards, Ill be ecstatic) I'll be one happy guy.
