katiefoolery: (Get your words out!)
I did something crazy over the weekend.  Insane.  Possibly ill-advised.  Only time will tell...

I pledged to write 200,000 words next year.

Considering I wrote maybe a couple of hundred words this year, this aim seems both hopeless and overly optimistic all at once.  And yet, it comes at almost a perfect time, since I've been thinking a lot about writing lately.  Thinking.  Not doing.  But still.

However, I don't believe I should be the only one engaging in such craziness.  Forget NaNo - a mere month of writing like a possessed thing surviving on caffeine and shared suffering.  This is where it's at.  Don't just write one dodgy novella... write five!  Write a great, long, sprawling saga!  Swim in the stream of consciousness.  Or, uh, actually decide on a project and work on that instead.

Just DO EEEEEEEEEEEET.  Get your words out.

And then blame [livejournal.com profile] theemdash and [livejournal.com profile] sopdetly, because it was all their idea in the first place.

Get your words out!



Also, [livejournal.com profile] crazedturkey did this, so I'm going to do it, too...
