stumbled across the national novel writing website the other week.
in it they set the challenge to write one 50,000 word novel in a month, november.
for want of something better to do - i am going to give it ago. fifty thousand words of utter drivel. shall i do a misery memoir style novel - taking as a basis the old monty python sketch? a burroughs like cut-up novel filled with transgressive prose? maybe a period piece revisiting london of the past? or a witty satirical novel that lampoons the state of the economy, though it could also be an attack on modern politics.
in reality it will be 50,000 words of swearing poorly thought out ideas that probably will have guns, girls, monsters and spaceships in it.
are you up for the challenge?
