One Man Writes 50,000 Words In 10 Hours!
If you’re on social media, you might be aware that November is National Novel Writing Month, otherwise known as “NaNoWriMo” in trendy, social media speak.
I think it’s awesome to set aside a month like this as a way to encourage writers, but I also think budding novelists should temper their expectations in thinking they can finish an entire 50,000 word novel, from writing, to proofing, to editing, in 30 days. As I tweeted the other day, “If you somehow manage to write an entire novel in 30 days, be sure to hire a good editor.”
The idea being that the quality of your work will be affected by trying to condense the type of work it requires to complete a novel into 30 days. Why not go for 90 days instead?
Anyway, the YouTube German comedian Flula attempted to conquer NaNoWriMo last year, and the results speak for themselves.
His novel looks like an absolute winner, and he even allowed us, via video, to peak into the moment when he crosses the 50,000 word boundary. It’s pure elation.
You must watch this. Be inspired.
