If you’re following along with the CamiKaos thought train lately you’re probably aware that I have done the unthinkably stupid and signed on for Bert (really it’s NaNoWriMo but I hate typing that so Bert it is). I’m not doing too bad. I’ve gotten up over 6,000 words now. I’ve done absolutely no editing of any kind, at all, what so ever… and I am told that is good.
However it is in my blood to delete things I have written and rewrite them ten times… and that is not good… so in an effort to continue not to edit I am also NOT reading what I write.
This helps in the not editing but it makes it very difficult for the smooth flow of the novel, however I am going to make that work for me. You see my novel is not really going to make very much sense anyway and so I’m just going with it.
But do you know I think I might actually like? SOMEONE to read it… at least in these very crazy beginning stages… that is where you… ALL OF YOU come in handy. I’m going to publish it one little chapter at a time (and I do mean little chapters) and let it be read.
To date only one person has read any more of it than the tiny snippet I posted on the Bert site and that is my dearest, my darling… no NO NO… Not that dearest darling, this dearest darling.
She seemed very entertained by the book I am simply calling “Fiction”. Sadly though, she can not be trusted as she loves me much to much to ever dislike anything I say or do…
So that’s where all of you come in. I know you have a love to hate me or hate to love me thing going on right? And you want to be literary critiques right?
So the only thing left to answer is that question over to your right. Shall I post the chapters here or should I give the book a blog of its very own? Let me know. I intent to post the tiny chapter one tomorrow either here or there… wherever there may be.
