Your Final Warning

As I get ready to start this bitch off, I thought I should post one last warning. There is a 92.7% chance that this "novel" will end up being a real pile of dung, complete with swarming flies and maggots. Good luck trying to read it. Don't say I didn't warn you.

What you can expect

As November 1st approaches I've been thinking a lot about how exactly I'm going to pull off this literary feat. My strategy will be to let the story write itself. I'm not going to worry about plot holes, character development, symbolism, or any other rules of novel writing. In order to reach my goal of 1600 to 1700 words per day, I'm going to abandon all the pretenses of genuine literature.

I have a vague idea of a main character, and what will happen to him. I know some elements the story will include. And I expect that parts of the story will end up being very graphic and offensive. There are no lines that I will be unwilling to cross.

If this sounds like the kind of slop you might like to read, come back here on November 1st.

Best Novel Ever

National Novel Writing Month doesn’t officially start until November 1st. So don’t expect to see any posts here until that day. Then I’m aiming for 1700 words per day. It will be craptacular.
