A literary writer blogs about NaNoWriMo

Emma Darwin has some interesting things to say about NaNoWriMo -- and it's perhaps not what you might expect from a literary writer.

I do agree with what she says. My last attempt at NaNo may be the shittiest of shitty first drafts, but there are some decent bits in there and -- largely due to the way it was written -- it moves at a tremendous pace, which suits the thriller type plot.
