NaNoWriMo: Collaborative Project

Well, it's almost that time of year. To be honest I wasn't sure whether I would participate this year either. On the one hand I have a hard time keeping on top of the word count, on the other hand I should be writing a ton anyway. But this year I'm going to be doing something special. Along with Jason and Nathan we're each going to write our own story, set in the same world, for 30,000 words. And then for the finale we'll bring our separate plot lines together into one book. So we're basically going to be working on a collaborative piece. We'll see how this goes, and whether me and Jason will be able to keep up with Nathan's insane writing speed.

My part in the story is going to be a little interesting, since I'm going to be on a completely different continent from their plots, and have to develop my own separate plot. On the one hand that keeps me from being able to rely on their help too much, on the other hand I have a lot more freedom with what I do. Either way, it should be an interesting practice, and by the time we're done we'll have a 110,000 word collaborative work.

I'm definitely going to have fun with this, already have an idea for the main viewpoint character that should be a lot of fun. Either way, I'll keep you updated on my daily progress here. For those of you who care.

Also, since I want to emphasize the writing aspect of my blog, I'm going to be posting updates on my own writing until we start the NaNoWriMo project.

Vikings vs deadly clouds.
That should be the book title: DEADLY CLOUDS.
Also you are free to do something else with your guys if you want. It's not like we could go and delete what you write after you do it. :P

That really sounds interesting and that's a hefty word count to go for.
