    Any Primal NaNo-ers out there?

    Primal Fuel
    As some of you may know, November is National Novel Writing Month -- known as NaNoWriMo. (http://www.nanowrimo.org/)

    I'll be doing my own version of NaNoWriMo -- instead of 50,000 words in a month, I'll do 40,000. But I'm writing an 80,000 word novel. My goal is to have it finished by the end of December. So 10,000 words a week, for eight weeks. I did that this summer -- 10,000 words a week for 6 weeks. It was a lot of work, but I figure I can do it again. Hopefully this time with less stress.

    Any other primal writers out there? Interested in writing a novel in the month of November? Let me know!
    If I don't live my dream, who will?

    Are you seriously saying that someone with a love of writing and, presumably, language came up with "nanowrimo"?
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    I'm giving it a shot! This is my first year, and I'm basically pulling 50,000 words out of my derriere come November 1st because I just decided to do it a few days ago. I've never really written fiction before, either. Do you have a genre/title/outline/etc. yet?

    Good luck to you!!! I think that NaNoWriMo is awesome, and I am going to do it some day. For me, it's "national dissertation writing month," just like the last year and the next year will also be. ;-)

    IF I were writing a novel, it would be about a neanderthal, kind of like Jean Auel's books.

    I'll do it, so long as I'm not pulling overtime or any of that. I have a book started, it's just a matter of picking it back up. I ain't going by word count but page count (at least 2 pages a day, preferably 5).

    I just found out about it through this post...I had decided that I needed a "Use Your Brain" challenge for November.
    I'd thought about learning Web Design.
    But this may be it...hmmmm...
    I was a newspaper reporter for a while...But this would be the first time I've tried writing fiction.
    I guess if I'm going to do it, I'd better come up with an idea

    Cilla! You do?! You always write such great posts here, I would never have thought this!

    I did it last year, and completed it on the last day. But I'm NOT doing it again; extremely time consuming!
