Breaking the 5th Wall


30 Oct 2012

My roommate is an aspiring author, and so he’s participating in NaNoWriMo this year. I’ve never been very good at NaNoWriMo, and I wasn’t planning on participating this year. On the other hand, have been meaning to get started on another project, and I have an idea left over from my RailsRumble brainstorming session. So this year I’ve decided I’m going to do my own personal MyRaiMo.

NaNoWriMo is a fairly rules light affair, and so I’m going to keep it that way for me as well. I’m going to complete as much as I can between November 1st and 30th, but before that (so, tomorrow) I’m only allowing myself to:

  1. Generate a new rails project (because honestly, the computers going to do that for me anyway)
  2. Edit the readme
  3. Make issues in Github

Once MyRaiMo starts I’m going to try to keep it as close to the RailsRumble rules as possible. Which means I’ll be making or finding my own graphics and doing all design by myself. Design hasn’t really ever been one of my strong suits, though I don’t think I’m terrible at it.

I think this will be an all around interesting experience.
