I haven’t written anything here in a while. The reason for it is I’ve been writing things in other places. Now that I’m officially on staff for www.indiegames.com, I’m writing articles for them 4-6 times a week. This involves finding and trying good games on top of the writing itself. It’s also November, which back home in the USA is National Novel Writing Month, a.k.a. NaNoWriMo.
Every year, a lot of people celebrate NaNoWriMo. The goal is to pump out 50,000 words of a story over the course of the month. It’s doable if you keep up with it. When I tried last year, though, I got a few thousand words in and then stopped. This year, I picked up the same story and am trying to actually finish it. It may be a little cheaty to use the same idea and what I started with last year, but this is a story idea that’s been floating around my head for years waiting to be written.
Besides, when the goal is 50,000 words, what’s a 2,500 word head start?(more…)
