from CE Murphy’s blog:
“I have accepted desperance/Chazâ€™s challenge, and will be writing a novel in five weeks.
Chaz is already ahead; he has 15K of an 80K novel written, and I have, um. Five or ten hand-written pages of a 60K novel written. More alarmingly, I have a Walker Papers proposal and a short story to do, both of which really need to be done before the novel. BUT I SHALL NOT DESPAIR.”
And because a) the write-a-thon taught me nothing and b) I can’t see a challenge go by without thinking “oooo, sounds like fun” I said “hey, can I play, too?
Apparently, I can.Â We start Monday.
*headdesks, makes more coffee*
I also have 15k words written, of a 70k novel.Â I s’pose I’m technically in the lead, when we start.Â This situation will not hold, I know those two.Â Plus, they’re six hours ahead of me.Â I’ll wake up and already be behind…
Edited to Add:Â Update on the Who and When.Â Short version: 60k in 5 weeks), and many of us are insane.
