National Novel Writing Month (also known as November, or NaNoWriMo) is upon us! I have never participated but I saw this list of books written during NaNoWriMo that were ultimately published here, here and here.
I’m pretty impressed. It’s a huge and awesome commitment. So if you’re participating this year, good luck! And may the publishing industry smile upon you when your work is finished.
I believe the only two I have read are Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen and The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. But I’m interested in reading Ian O’Neill’s Endo, a mystery set in the world of cycling, and Ransom Stephens‘ The God Patent, about someone who used a programming patent to patent God and ultimately tries to enforce his patent.
