It’s almost that time again, National Novel Writing Month. This will be my third year participating and I’m pretty excited about it. This year I’ve decided to do something a little different, since I’m a gamer, and most of my readers here are also gamers (I would think) I am going to give you guys the power to decide what I’m writing about. The first year I wrote, I did a fantasy book. It wasn’t that great. In fact, it sucked. Last year I wrote non-fiction and really enjoyed it. This year – it’s up to YOU.
What I need is for anyone who has a few seconds to leave a comment with the following: What game would you like to see me write about my character’s daily adventures in. It can be absolutely any game even if I don’t currently play it – for the month of November my character will come alive and dance off of the pages in a 50,000 word story. I’ll post my progress on this site on a special section for anyone interested to read. Every single action written will be something that occurred in game. Hopefully enough goes on for me to write 50,000 words, and hopefully my readers here volunteer a game that has something I can write about! The game mentioned the most in comments will be the one I go with. If I get no comments I’ll just randomly select one out of a hat. I know this may be a completely hair-brained idea but I’m pretty excited about it. Especially since NaNoWriMo is just around the corner and I won’t be doing any real preparation ahead of time.
On that same note, I AM also looking for a few more sponsors for this great charity. You can find a sponsor me link here on my profile on the NaNoWriMo site. I’m not trying to raise that much money, but every little bit helps. It motivates me to keep writing throughout the month of November, and if my gaming posts are sparse, well now you’ll know why!
Happy gaming (and writing) no matter where you find yourself.
