No, no, my calendar isn't askew. I know it's August and not November, which is supposed to be when the official NaNoWriMo event runs. However, I can't resist a challenge, and a challenge was exactly what I got from Charo yesterday. This August NaNoWriMo challenge comes courtesy of the creative writing SIG of Mensa Philippines.
Charo's letter, in part:
Hey guys! The (Mensa) Creative Writing SIG I'm with will be having an
August NaNoWriMo activity. It's like the usual NaNoWriMo except that
it's on August (er... tomorrow!) and it's good for at least 25,000
If anyone else wants to join -- and I really doubt it -- drop me a note. I'll clue you in where to sign up.
Ah, it's only 25,000 words anyway, half of the full NaNoWriMo. I'll consider this as practice. It'll be a cinch.
Famous last words, I know. Oh, well. Once more unto the breach.
Update: decided to cut my participation short. Some things came up and I apparently won't have time.
