I was thinking of participating in NanoWriMo(National Novel Writing Month)this year, since it's the tenth anniversary and I've had this story swimming around in my head for some time. Unfortunately life is pretty busy so I don't think I'll be able to reach the required daily word count. Therefore, I have decided to spread my challenge over 2 months.
I started on 29th September--my self imposed deadline for 50,000 words is 29th November.
The working title is "Kujira", which means "Whale" in Japanese, basically because it is a whale of a tale. I've found a little widget thingy to track my word count and I've set myself a goal of 2 months to finish the first draft.
