I first thought of what I would write for this year’s NaNoWriMo when I was recuperating after my heart bypass surgery in July 2010. I was advised to walk about for a little while every day, starting with 3 minutes and going on to reach 45 minutes, which is now the prescribed duration of my daily walk- for as long as I live! While walking I naturally thought of NaNo 2010 and a few ideas came to me which looked quite promising.
As I flipped through the blog posts on this site I realized that while the author may be very familiar with a location he writes about, not everyone reading the book need be. Much of It Can’t Be You is set in picturesque Coorg in my home state of Karnataka in the south of India.
