NaNoWriMo 2011

Tick, tock, goes the clock, and all the time it flies,

Tick, tock, and all too soon, you and I must DIE!

                                                              Peg Dolls

How do you know when you run out of ideas on how to start a post? When you quote a poem said on Doctor Who. And a macabre one at that. *sighs*

Doctor Who was on last week with creepy peg dolls that turn people into dolls themselves. As the Doctor Who website describes it: It begins with the hands… Fingers stiffen and apparently turn to wood. And then the process spreads until the victim of the dolls has become like them. The Doctor called their state a ‘living death’.

But the title of this post is NaNoWriMo, which stands for National Novel Writing Month. In NaNoWriMo, you write a 50,000 word story in the space of one month. Seeing as this is my first time, and because I can, I’ll be doing the young writers program, where I’m going to choose my word target : 10,000 words is what I’m aiming for. If I actually remember to do it, then I’ll put sections of it on monkeymoronswriting.wordpress.com, my new blog that I really need to update.
