Any why are they both for November? Did the NaBloPoMo guys just follow the model too closely?
Okay, enough rhetorical questions. (The answers, by the way, are National [insert meme here] Month, they aped NaNoWriMo, and yes.) For what it’s worth, I’m half-seriously considering trying NaNoWriMo (that’s the one where you try to write a 50,000-word novel in a month)—I know, I know, I’ve said this before—but by now everyone should know I’m full of grandiose schemes and ideas, right? Right?
At any rate, blogging every day isn’t really that much of a stretch, since I’m more or less doing that already (not here recently, but certainly between my other two blogs). But the novel… you’d have to average 1667 words per day just to meet the 50,000 mark.
(For reference, my longest piece (I think it’s my longest) here on chuggnutt.com is this, at about 3500 words, just over twice what that daily average should be.)
Something to chew on. At least the idea’s out there in the ether now. And it looks as though Jen will be participating in both—though I like her idea of National Cookbook Writing Month (NaCoWriMo?) in an ironic sort of way…
