Announcement for November!
As I indicated at the beginning of the last post, stuff! Stuff that will shake you to your very core!
Starting with this picture:
As a few of you who frequent the internet may know, November is National Novel Writing Month. (The word “National” means nothing here, as it’s online, and the internet is a nation unto itself.) Essentially, the spiel is that aspiring writers pledge to, over the course of a 30 day period, write a novel of 50,000 words or more – averaging at 1667 words per day. This is, obviously, a huge commitment.
And I have decided to give it a go.
I’ve been planning to write a book for a bit now, and I’ve been planning my WriMo-ing for a little less. I’ve been very sporadic recently about updates, and a part of that has been because “reviewing time” has been superceded by “novel planning time”. (It’s also because I’m shit at organising myself – hence why a month of writing every day is both a terrifying prospect and an exciting dream-come-true.)
But obviously, writing a book will cut into my reviewing time a fair bit. So, as of the end of this setlist, and on Halloween night no less, I am suspending “The Hang of Music” for at least a month. I will not be writing any reviews until I’ve hit those 50k words, I warn you now!
I will, perhaps, be putting up some creative writing, as a replacement for this semi-regular feature, but don’t worry, I won’t be subjecting any of you to unwanted beta reading here: only my closest friends will be tormented by serious prose the shade of purple.
FYI, though, if any of you are doing NaNoWriMo this year, please get in contact with me on there – my username is “Hatful_of_Napalm”, and I’d love to see a friendly face on the fora! And the point of NaNo is to give us all a time to write, so we can all pull together, so socialising is always nice!
Anyway, thanks for reading, sorry about the lateness, and see you in a few days – I am off to invent some fictions!
