One Week to NaGraNoWriMo!

Just one week remaining until I start in on NaGraNoWriMo: National Graphic Novel Writing Month. It's my version of NaNoWriMo, in which I'm going to try to write the script to a 175-page graphic novel during the month of November.

I've pretty much decided on which of my ideas I'm going to attempt, but now I'm getting all nervous about whether or not I'll be able to make it through. I've never written a comic script for anything before, so 175 pages seems like a big task. I'm sure that I'll learn a lot in the process, and in the rules of NaNoWriMo, it doesn't have to be good, it just has to get done!

At least one other person has said that they'll join in as well. Any more takers? Who knows--maybe we can start a new movement!

I'm actually probably in too. I was going to start scripting a book this week, but if I wait 'til next week, that'll give me an extra week to procrastinate! I'm aiming for a 350 page book, but we'll see where ideas take me.

I can't wait to start. I'll be writing a graphic novel I've been kicking around for a year already.

In preparation, I've been writing the script for a totally unrelated graphic novel. I figure it'll help to at least be accustomed to writing in the format and getting into the frame of mind needed to tackle NaNoGraWriMo. I work on it during my lunch break.

Maybe we should set up a sort of online community for others attempting to write graphic novels for NaNoWriMo?
