Bruin Fisher Posted November 1, 2010 Report Share Posted November 1, 2010 The flagship current affairs radio programme 'Today' on BBC's Radio 4, has just discussed NaNoWriMo and interviewed Frederick Forsyth and Ian Rankin, both of whom were positive about writing a novel in thirty days. Both said it is realistic to do, and have written novels that fast. Both said research and planning would need to be done previously but that the writing could be done in 30 days. Both said that a writer needs to write a lot in order to hone their skills in order eventually to attract a publisher, and that NaNoWriMo is a valuable exercise towards that goal. I'm not sure whether the BBC iPlayer is available everywhere, but if you have access to it, http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/radio will get you there. Choose Radio 4, and the Today programme begins 6:00am and ends 9:00am GMT. The interview is the last ten minutes of the programme. Thought you might like to know! Quote Link to comment
