I posted recently about the plan [ & i use the word loosely] for this years’ NANOWRIMO novel [ well, novelish].
A series of inter-connected stand alone pieces based on dates & days and using newspaper headlines as the trigger or starting point.
I’ve got a little bit further in the planningg, so, what I have now is ;
A date in November choosen by asking a randon person to give a date, so we have 14th November.
I’ve decided to only use my local daily newspaper – the ” Leicester Mercury” – I like the limitations that this will put on me and the constriction will be that the short story/prose piece MUST be based on a story on the front page.
Now, I need years, so readers and visitors to this blog, send me a year between 1900 and 2012 and the first 31 will be used as a chapter in the novel.
If you add your name, I will happily dedicate the chapter to you as well.
