50,000 Words of Wood I’m wondering how many writers are on the roll-call here at LJ?

The month of November is a good time to see how many words one can produce, to write a novel….about a story with wooden content or....? Can you write 50,000 words in one month....then you can sit back after the smoke clears and say; ”yes I did….write a novel.”

I mean we are workers of wood right, and as such I have many words of thoughts going through my head constantly as I work the wood. Ha, it’s really easier then that, since from out of my past, I have learned to even be silent and let the wood do the talking for me.

Now lets see, the only problem//opportunity that I see is that I’m not all-ways writing about wood….so my novel may be on an-other subject….

If any would like to take the challenge, then here’s a link to the site for signing up….What is NaNoWriMo? ....and it may take a few clicks to get in, as this site will be busy this month.

....and good writing to all!

Thank you.

’’ smart, work safe, and live, to work the wood....”

I am afraid, at my typing speed, 50,000 words would probably take 50 months!!

Isn’t that the daily average number of words spoken by women? Personally, I can type faster than I can think, but 50,000 would still take me 50 months.

Back in the Army days when I was a Radio Teletype Operater I could type 70 words a minute. Now my fingers are so big and fat and I’m so slow I’‘m lucky to muster 15 wpm. It would take more than that, besides no one can write like you buddy…. friends

Sorry Frank not here either. I’ve got too many rocks to move, not enough wood to work and consequently not enough time in the day to even attempt such a feat as you are discussing. I’m doing good to type a few short emails a day.

Good luck and I can’t wait to read your work.

Thanks for the invitation Frank,

but I don’t think I could write a 50,000 word novel, from now until doomsday.<(:O)#
