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.
