2 Days Left to Finish your Masterpiece and Submit it to National Novel Writing Month

We all have a Novel inside us. Most of us fail to give birth to it.

I picked a working title for mine ('9 Years in the Valley'), jotted down a few ideas, thought of actors who could play some of the characters in the movie adaptation, have some ideas for the soundtrack. I even registered the corresponding domain name. All that said, I have only a few lines to speak of...

I will definitely not be able to complete a 175 pages novel by tomorrow night, midnight and enter it in the 'National Novel Writing Month' contest which consists of writing a Novel in a Month (November).Bannerlogo

Last year about 10.000 people completed the challenge of a 50.000 words opus.

Maybe I should use the domain name I registered and start writing live, one page at a time. It would take me a minimum of 175 days or about 6 months to complete.

Did you enter 'National Novel Writing Month' ? If you did let us know how you fared.
