Something I meant to do last November that I never got around to doing is participate in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo for short, but I just call it Nano).
For anybody who is not aware, during Nano you are given the task of writing a 50,000 word novel for the entire month of November.
Do it, and you will get recognized by the organization. This is a good thing for me because it is just one more thing that I get to add to my writing portfolio that I can show off when I apply for freelance writing projects.
I’ve also been looking forward to Nano because I’ve been meaning to create a slight retelling of the infamous 13 Reasons Why Netflix series. While the first season of the show was pretty damn good, the second and third seasons…not so much. It seems like the series became a franchise and to me, that really ruins the integrity of the show.
But because I enjoy the novel and first season so much, I want to retell some of it. And do this I shall, and I may as well use Nano to do so.
Why eight days?
That’s because of the title of the novel of my Nano project: The Wicked Eightfold Path. It’s about a kid who looks to eight other kids who he has wronged in one way or another for redemption of sorts.
And I want to take eight days to write this.
That’s about it.
So I will see you back here next Tuesday when I am hopefully finished with it.
