In my last post I told you about my experience of trying to write a novel in one month. Did I end up with one? Not even a shitty first draft. It was more like I jotted down 1500 words’ worth of notes every day for a month. Not a waste of time. But definitely not a novel. If anything, it taught me that I don’t have a coherent idea for one.
NaNoWriMo books that have gone on to be published (according to About.com’s Fiction Writing column): Sarah Gruen’s “Flying Changes,” Rebecca Agiewich’s “Breakup Babe,” Dave Wilson’s “The Mote in Andrea’s Eye,” and Gayle Brandeis’s “Self Storage.”
