Being a complete masochist I’ve decided to compete in this years Nation Novel Writing Month. The idea, if you don’t already know, is to write a novel within one month - a novel being defined as 50 000 words.
As of this post I’m just under 3000 words in which is a little behind the pace (I’m hoping to catch up this weekend). It’ll be a Raymond Chandler homage complete with hardboiled private detective, tangled plot and organised crime - although it already seems to be going off the rails into terra incognita so who knows where it will end up.
Anyway - the purpose of this post is to let y’all know I’m doing it so you can mock me mercilessly if/when I fail.
