Yesterday A.M I passed the NaNo halfway mark when I hit 25,000 words. Which was nice.
I've Seen a few anti-NaNo post lately posted by 'real' writers. Although they were 'real' writers they were a bit weak on research. One thought that NaNoers only wrote one month out of twelve, were sastisfied with whatever they wrote, didn't edit, or rewrite and sent their NaNo draft off to the publishers on Dec 1st. Another couldn't understand how anyone could write a good 50,000 novel in a month and thought the idea of limiting a novel to 50,000 words length was stupid anyway. If he took the minute or so it would take to check the NaNo FAQs he'd see that despite being called a Novel writing month you only have to write 50,000 words of a novel to finish, not a 50,000 novel. Ho Hum. Writing, especially writing to a publishable standard is hard work, but that doesn't mean some people can't do it for fun.
Anyway, I serious about my writing, and the craft but I'm still enjoying NaNo. It's been a real spur to my creativity. Juts the kick I needed at the latter part of the writing year.
