about nanowrimo

have you heard of this thing, nanowrimo? it’s “national novel writing month” in november.

everyone participating sits down and cranks out a novel in one month. it’s probably not a very good novel because it was written very quickly with minimal editing. after a couple months of editing it might be good, or it might never be good enough.

regardless, lots of people participate.

i think, however, that december ought to have a special little gimmick, too.

december ought to be national read-as-many-novels-as-you-can month. (NaReAMaNoAYoCaMo?)

nothing will help your editing of your novel like spending a month digging in deep with novel after novel after novel.

who can read three every week?

spread the word. let’s make busy, stressful december the month with the most reading. with the wga strike, it’s not like there’s going to be anything worth watching on tv, anyway.

  1. Actually, December is the follow-up to NaNoWriMo. It’s National Novel Editing Month, NaNoEdMo.Not that I’ve ever participated, but I have known people crazy enough to try.I like your idea of reading better.
