  1. It was a joke Idea!!! 🙂 Novel writing can be something that seems too scary to ever attempt. Someone like me’d probably need motivation ( in the form of a 😉 ) to even think about doing it. 🙂
    Glad to know that it’s coming along fine.

  2. Finally somebody realized that you should be forced to write, at gun point or 😀 something like it. I can’t wait to hear more.

  3. @rads: I was of the same mindset. After all, I’ve written short stories and I like the format. But I took the easy way out (or is it the hard way) and decided to try a novel. And by the way, you’re way ahead of me on the wordcount so heads-up!!

    @PS: You can when you see me next. 🙂 I’m still in the kindergarten and every day is a new discovery in writing.

    @Sharanya: Why ever??!! I am never ashamed of anything I turn out even if no one else likes it. It is your baby after all, believe in it!

    I had the best November of my life thanks to this. Yes, I made it to the 50,000 word count– wrote a “novel” on Bombay. But I’m too ashamed to even look at it now, so after the initial euphoria, it’s back to the writing/non-writing days..I am, however, sure that you will do better than me.

  5. way to go!! A novel’s one of the best ways to explore yourself I think..

    Also, IMHO, it’s very much possible to write about a character you dont like.. there are negative protagonists, and second person perspectives and oh so many other such possibilities..

    You know what, I just recently bought a book for my class on creative writing, I wish I could have given it to you.. It has awesome guidelines for sudden questions that pop up while writing a story.. like the number of words needed in a chapter..

  6. er, may I also do a shameless plug and say I humbly stand in line (way behind of course) with all you fine novel-writers.

    Only difference being I am not attempting to write novel, coz well, I prefer short stories. And two, I am still in two minds over the whole quantity of words being churned out. It’s a race you race with yoruself, and I get that, but seriously speaking, isn’t there something to be said of crisp succint ideas turning into say I donno, 10 words with depth than perhaps making it a lengthy 25?

    Voicing an opinion, while I stand at the end of the line at close to 1800 words or so..
