I keep talking about National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo), but haven’t mentioned that November is also National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo.) I enjoy NaNoWriMo, and have even made the 50,000 word mark a couple of times, but have yet to go back and make anything marketable out of that pile of words.
Even so,I am at it again. To me, it’s fun exercise. Y’know, runners like to run, so they have marathons. Writers like to write, so they do NaBlo/NaNo stuff.
Are any of you doing both NaBlo and NaNo this year?
I found a humorous article describing how to write like Nicholas Sparks via a link on A2eatWrite’s blog. I understand how authors can use things such as the Hero’s Journey as a framework for their stories, but isn’t it interesting how formulaic Mr. Sparks is? Do you think it’s intentional on his part? I ask, because the quotes in the article make it sound like he is unaware of this. Make sure you scroll to the bottom of the article if you check this out, there are some hilarious parody book covers.
As for today’s picture, I’m not really sure what to say other than I still have much to learn about Texan culture…
