Nanorimo 2017 .. a novel?
I have been wanting to write a book about the Scrum process for the last two years. Let me clarify: I’m not considering a manual on how to impliement the agile software development process! That has been written about extensively. I would like to write about how to use Scrum for new product development for non-software products. I would like to address the change in mindsets required for Scrum vs Waterfall, as well as some of the hurdles for the culture in most organizations. I would also discuss resource and training issues, and so forth.
National Novel Wirting Month (Nanorimo) is a “fun, seat of your paints approach to creative writing.” (nanowrimo.org). This is not a typical ‘novel’, but the process is what I want to use. I plan to do this in November, just as the website describes. Basically, 50,000 words in 30 days. I am not sure my book is a 50,000 word book, but I’ll start there. Wish me luck, and drop be a line if you have any ideas or input.
Yes, I learned to type on a real typewriter. I am not going to write this or any novel on one. I will write the entire book on my iPad. I will post more about the tools I will be using soon. Check back often!
