I’ve heard that agents and publishers and perhaps even readers get wary when you admit you wrote a novel in 30 days. National Novel Writing Month – i.e. November – is called “30 days of literary abandon” for a reason. Every day, we Wrimos write – or hope to write – approximately 1700 words on an imagined novel. We imagine the novel. Some of us outline it. I laugh. “Outline? What’s an outline?” Rather, I have a vague idea of my main character and a clearer idea of what changes him, hopefully for the better.
So, Happy All Saints’ Eve. And know I’m getting geared up to write 50,000 words in 30 days beginning at midnight.
