The point of the last article was actually to announce that I’ll be publishing my NaNoWriMo this year on this very blog.
Don’t feel obligated to read it. I make it public only so I feel that accountability that comes from being in public.
If you like this blog though, I think you might dig the novel. Of course, it’s not written yet. But the story I have in mind is kind of fun. Since I’ll be writing it at such a furious pace, it will probably get pretty be-boppy as I go.
What do I mean by be-boppy?
Well, when I get nervous, tired, or embarrassed, I think I talk like a beatnik. I don’t. But at the moment, I think I do.
The novel will be chapterized into journal entries. Epistolary is the way to go with NaNoWriMo. Obvious breaks. Easy narration. Limited perspective.
This year’s effort is title Joshua’s Journal – about a smart fourteen year-old who goes to camp in 1990.
It will start appearing in this space in one week – November 1, 2012.
I’ll leave the whole thing up as I go along, and afterward. Though I will probably take the book down around year’s end (for my own reasons, alright?)
Check it out if you dare.
