Writing dynamo

There is this girl… She’s writing 12 novels in a year (13 if she writes fast and have some time between novels). All year round NaNo.

Who else here thinks she’s crazy? And who else here would like to give it a try?

*slowly raises hand and looks around* Me.

Wouldn’t it be the same feeling when you’re reading? The first few words you’re still on the planet Earth, but the more words you read, the more removed from reality you become and suddenly you’re totally engrossed in the book’s world. What if it’s the same with writing… let’s say the first 50-60’000 words are hard, you’re still on planet Earth, but as you approach the reality threshold the smoother your writing becomes, the easier it gets, the more your hands seems to be in possession of someone else but you – they are moving, but you have no idea how or how the fingers can hit the right keys when your mind is somewhere in outer space without a spacesuit?

I have to try it. I seriously have to try it. No more excuses. 12 novels in a year. So be it! November and beyond here I come!

  1. I don’t have to think I’m crazy, I know I am! Thanks for the mention here!

    And if you are inclined, I say do it! This year has taught me so much about writing and life and so much more that I am still figuring out. I have not loved every minute, or even every hour. But it has been the best year of my life to date.

    Let me know if you decide to keep going – I would love to keep track of your progress!

    And yes, your description is very much like how it feels, this project owns me as much as I own it.
