Desert Of Zin

The occasional blog of Alistair Bain – Writer, Husband, Father and Chief Techno-Arcanologist at the Institute of Giant Robots, Spaceships and Wizards. None of these positions pay well.

New year, New NaNoWriMo

Yeah, I wasn’t going to bother with NaNoWriMo this year. I’ve been totally scunnered with my writing and the thought of forcing myself though 50,000 words in a month is less than appealing.

Well I happen to mention this to my wife, the ever lovely Ruthy, and she comes up with the inspirational idea of us working together on something.

Sounds good.

We are both going to write a 50,000 story based on the beginnings of a idea that Ruth had long ago. Her existing work on this will become a joint opening chapter, we’ll write what we need to on our own and we’ll come together once both are finished to write the final chapter between us.

A bold idea, but at least it’s a different one. :)
