NaNoWriMo Formula for Success ~ Saturday, October 25, 2008

Well, it's rather foolhardy, given all else that's going on, but at least on this side of the timing, I'm looking forward to the challenge--so, I'm going to enter NaNoWriMo again this year and try to cross that 50K mark once more. If I succeed, it will be my third year of completing the challenge: write 50,000 words in a month.

Since I also have classes, readings and exam prep to contend with, it should be rather an interesting month!

Fortunately, this year, I have come up with a winning strategy, which I will now share with any other NaNoWriMo intrepids out there:

1) Come up with a brilliant premise
2) Develop it and add complications enough to sustain 50-100K words (I'll have to write only half, if I want to actually complete a publishable novel)
3) Write 50K words of it in one month.

How could I lose with such a brilliant plan under my hat? :-D Yeah, if only it were that easy. Oh yes, and it begins Nov. 1st, so I have exactly one week to come up with the story premise and outline. Between now and then, I also have an essay, a mid-term and an application to complete. *gulp*

It should be an interesting five weeks.
