Something unique and odd that I thought I'd share and maybe get somebody else to join (unlikely!): November is National Novel Writing Month, which basically amounts to a contest surprisingly similar to the 48-hour game contests I've entered: write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days (and just like our game contests, no prizes!). I'm gonna give it a shot and see what happens. I always wanted to write something, so why not? Check out the website at:



www.nanowrimo.org



Even if you're not interested, the website is pretty amusing.

While in Washington state over Christmas I saw a news blurb about a guy that cranks out novel after novel in just a few days. It also mentioned the above contest. How did that go? Have you posted your entry for all of us to read?

Heehee. I didn't quite reach the 50,000 word requirement. I got 3000. But that's a record for me anyway! And no, nobody gets to read my 3000 words. I only got that far by practically stringing them together at random. I actually gave up about a week in. I was just not interested enough to have the discipline. I would love to successfully write something someday, but I don't think it'll happen when I'm in the middle of developing a game, and having a 48-hour game contest at the same time.
