Last year, November 2012, I took on the National Novel Writing Contest and wrote 60,000 words in the allotted 30 days.
Those of you who've done it this year, you're probably thinking your pretty tough. I was. Not to dampen your spirits, but if you're truly thinking yourself the master of all writing marathons, think again.
Yes, there's something even more challenging than NaNoWriMo.
The 3 Day Novel.
And it sounds exactly like it is.
30 days divided by 10. That's all the time you have to write a full length novel.
And now, this isn't some total spoof of a post. It's real. Thousands of writers have done this - some have even succeeded (without going whack in the old second story, either).
It's not like I'm going to ever try this. Maybe later. Maybe.
Sorry I just killed all your pride in finishing a 50k novel, but it had to be done.
