I attended the launch of the Pretoria area of NaNoWriMo this afternoon and it was great meeting so many new people - in the same semi-sinking, desperately coping situation of trying to get 50 000 words out in thirty days and still remain sane.My plot outline is done - a murder mystery for a change - and I will post some of it here in my struggle to move towards that looming word count deadline.
Then again, if the struggle to find the murderer becomes too much, I could always commit the deadliest sin in creative writing - get a knight in shining armour to save the day. Yuck! Kill me before I ever stoop to that level.
So here goes my first NaNoWriMo novel - and the great lengths it will travel!
