Book writing

It struck me today what a talented bunch of friends I have.

The National Novel Writing Month competition (NaNoWriMo) is held each November with each participant attempting to write a 50,000 word novel in the month. Last time round, 80,000 people started, 13k people finished with over 980 million words in their collective novels. Two friends, Calum and k_sra gave it a go last time out and I’m tempted to try the same this year.

A university friend, Euan, is also a published novelist. I’m impressed and rather humbled by their collective talents. I’m tempted to try in November but, as Euan has already expressed, my first attempt is likely to be drivel, so maybe I should write my first novel now and follow it up with a much better effort in November?

50 thousand words? I struggle to find a 100 to write here.
