I just read the rules for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month.) I had planned to add 50,000 words to my last year’s winning project (see shiny badge to the right.) Even though I completed over 50,000 words last year, the story isn’t finished. I was looking forward to using the focused writing time this November to complete it.
But, the rules say you have to start over each year. From scratch. Bummer. Bummer.
There’s a Rebel Group forming and we even have our own Forum section. It seems there are many writers working on projects that are outside the boundaries. And we're being wholeheartedly embraced. After all, the purpose of NaNoWriMo is the self-challenge. The REAL prize is the accomplishment, and the new manuscript at the end.
So, I’ll embrace my Rebel Status for the month of November, and continue to flesh out (thanks, Gully :( ) my characters and add to the mystery/romance of my WIP (work in progress.)
I’m kinda likin’ it. Never been a rebel before….
