Well, dear readers, it has been quite some time since I have managed to write something here. Unfortunately I’ve been similarly unproductive on the fiction writing front as a whole. However, I’m looking to change all of that as we head into November. Obviously I will be participating in National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo, as it is affectionately referred to), which is a great way to jump start production since it requires its participants to write 50,000 words during the course of a month. I also have a few topics to blog on moving forward, including book reviews, TV reviews, and a NaNo journal. Which brings me to the topic at hand.
Last week a friend of mine posted the following on my Facebook wall:
Knowing that I do most of my writing by hand and given that NaNoWriMo was coming up, it seemed a fitting Snapple fact. It is also one that I will be trying to put to the test. I’ve equipped myself with a pencil and sharpener, and I will be writing out all of my NaNoWriMo project this year with a single pencil, assuming it can actually last for 50,000 words as claimed (and I suppose assuming I stop at 50,000 words!).
For more on my NaNo project as well as how the pencil challenge is progressing, check back here throughout November.
