This year for NaNoWriMo I am writing my entire 50,000 word novel on Twitter. I am crazy, thank you very much 🙂 But for those who have questions, here are hopefully some answers:
That’s totally awesome! Can I follow you?
Sure can! You can find my Twitter account exclusively for this purpose right here
A Twitter account just for this?
Yup. And I will only be tweeting the actual text of the novel. No little snippets of “Oh no what have I decided to do?!”. Those will all go on my regular Twitter account.
What are you going to do when you are done with it?
I plan on using Storify to capture the entire story. I will share it on my blog when I am complete and add it to this page.
How are you going to keep track of your word count?
I plan on writing first in word, then tweeting what I have accomplished for that day. Tweeting first turned out to be not the way to go.
Are you going to use Twitter handles or hashtags?
I haven’t decided yet. I’m thinking I may as well utilize handles and hashtags as long as I am using Twitter as my medium. I will probably break out those units into actual words when getting my word count (so if I were to tag @laurensbooks – completely made up just FYI – I would separate it to Lauren’s Books).
Got any more questions? Go ahead and tweet @simonislauren and I will be happy to respond!
