Everyone knows about NaNoWriMo, right?

In the month of November, writers from all over the world abandon housework and dependants in order to churn out 50,000 words on a new project. For some, it’s an immense challenge, one that having others with a common goal greatly helps to achieve; for others, it’s a normal day’s work, but with the added bonus of an amplified, enthusiastic, and borderline insane community.

I wrote about why I do NaNoWriMo here, and addressed various questions that fence-sitters have here. The short version is, it’s amazingly fun, the community is great, and I’ve never had a year pass where I’m not surprised at what I write.

My NaNoWriMo History:

  • 2004 – The Laraleoran (High fantasy, 86,000 words)
  • 2005 – A Sympathetic Life (“The Intersex Story”, Mainstream / gender-play, 52,000 words)
  • 2006 – Made for Another World (“The Clone Story”, Science Fiction, 50,000 words)
  • 2008 – The Dodgeball Conspiracy I (“The Rockstar Story”, Mainstream, 50,000 words)
  • 2009 – The Dodgeball Conspiracy II (“The Rockstar Story II”, Mainstream, 51,000 words)
  • 2010 – Triple Thread (“The Threesome in Space Story”, Science Fiction, 75,000 words)
  • 2011 – Horizon’s Verge (“Repressed Brits in Space Story”, Science Fiction, TBA)
