NaNoWriMo

It's getting to be that time again. The weather is cooling to a brisk crisp. Evening darkness seems heavier with anticipation. My laptop looks more inviting than ever. NaNoWriMo!

As you may already know, November brings us National Novel Writing Month! The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30. This will be my third year as a participant, and I'm predicting my first across the finish line. I've fallen short in previous years, but have a fierce determination this time around!

Who here is a NaNoWriMo enthusiast? I highly encourage you to check out the site and see if this frenzy is meant for you! It's an incredible experience!

  1. I always get excited about this and write about a chapter and never finished.

    I would love to write a novel, but I come up with a story and write a few chapters and never know how to finish it.

    Good luck with you writing.

  3. WOO! You go, girl! I need to take baby steps, so I've made this Nov. my own personal NoReMo (novel research month)...feeding off that good NaNoWriMo energy to make some progress.

  6. Awh that sounds so amazing! I love writing but when it comes to me finishing the story it takes months and months and I hate that about myself because it's something I love to do.

    Go you though!! uber exciting *thumbs up!*

  7. I always plan to do this but never quite pluck up the courage. I think I'm going to go for it. A month doesnt seem like enough time though. I guess you just gotta 'turn up to the page' as Julia Cameron says.
    Good luck with your writing.

  19. Wow! That's the first I've heard about this. How cool! Maybe I should try. I have about 100 pgs started years ago but never finished. Maybe that could be a goal for a start. Love your blog! :)
