NaNoWriMo and the NanoMonkey 2007 Podcast or what the hell?

Yes, it is that time of the year for the annual National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo for short. What the hell is that you ask? Basically it is a gimmick to get you wannabe novelists writing or should I say impetus to write that Great American cliché. You know you always had that great idea for a book and you fancy yourself as to having some rudimentary writing skills but you just never found the time or place to getting started. Well, wait no more since the goal is during the month of November to write 50,000 words or 175 pages in an effort to get a jump start on that novel. Kind of a misery loves company for writers endeavor that allows us to commiserate on the various manifestations of our writer’s block.

My contribution to this fool hardiness is assisting Chris Miller from Podiobooks with the Nanomonkey podcast or “Shouldn’t you be writing faster?” Chris works with P.G. HolyField and Kris Johnson on this podcast to give stymied writer tips on how to reach the exulted goal of 50,000 words during the month of November. Some are common sense writing tips, other are lifestyle recommendations. Yes, alcohol and drugs are discussed, not necessarily recommended but hey, if you got a dream go for it. Then there are my suggestions. I actually contributed two podcasts which I will discuss later and that are probably of limited value to any normal person. Fortunate for me, most writers don’t tend to be normal people.

So go ahead and write that novel, misery loves company.
