NaNoWriMo 2007

It's National Novel Writing Month, and yes, you can write a novel in 30 days.

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

As far as NaNoWriMo is concerned, that's 50,000 words in 30 days. Or 1667 words per day, which translates to roughly four pages of Times New Roman (font size 12) every two-hour day. Since November 4 is coming to a close (here in the Philippines), you should have around 16 pages of text by now.

If not, you can still catch up. If you need some inspirational NaNoWriMo tips, check out the site of Merlene Paynter. Thanks to her site, I found out about NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) and NaPodPoMo (National Podcast Posting Month).

(TIP: Check out Merlene's Utterz box in her sidebar.)

What's the whole point of this? You can motivate yourself to write four pages daily. And after 30 days, you will surprise yourself with what you are capable of achieving.

It's just four weeks, or half of the 300 Spartan training in Utah. You don't have to lift monster truck tires; you just have to sweat blood to fill up four pages of text each day.

Looking for local inspiration? Dean Francis Alfar is a Filipino writer who has conquered NaNoWriMo. Sige na no... i-Tri Mo. ;-)

(Hmmm... maybe that's why Dean hasn't blogged anything this November?)
