NaNoWriMo 2008

Well, I'm trying it again. I'm gonna try another superhero novel for the National Novel Writing Month event.

For those not in the know, NaNo is a non-profit event urging people (usually bad writers like me) to pound out at least 50,000 words worth of a story that could be developed into a published novel. There's no award or guarantee of publication like the 3-Day Novel contest promises, but the deal is, a finished novel is better than nothing. And in this day and age of Print-on-Demand services and small press publishers, getting published is slightly easier than ever before. The only thing you'll get if you make 50k word counts is a certificate and a firm handshake, oh and a html-code for a graphic on your webpage that says "Hey, I can write 50,000 words and not suck." :-)

I'm going to try the superhero-verse I've conjured up, I've had the heroes in my head for 4 years it's time to let them out and do something...
