It’s almost November which means the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is almost upon us! Usually I miss it by a few days to a few weeks, but this time I have been reminded of it a few weeks in advance! I’m so excited! Can you tell by all the exclamation marks? And yes this all means I am taking part in it this time around!
Sorry, I’m a little out of it at the moment. Basically I’m going to be writing like mad during November because the goal to reach is 50,000 words (175 pages) by midnight of the 30th. I have no idea if I’ll make that. Given my health and pain issues I might not, but I’m willing to give it a try. It’s nice to have the motivation and to be part of a writing community. I’ll be happy if I can make it to at least 40,000 words. I won’t get angry with myself if I make it to that.
I’m pretty much going to be entering into Hermitsville all that time which will be interesting because Sarah (poor Sarah) has never had to deal with me in writing mode before. I can be a little crazy. Just a little. We’ll know she’s a keeper if she isn’t’ ready to smack me by the time we come out of November!
This also means that I won’t be posting that much with all my typing and writing power going into this event (apart from my book clubs I won’t be doing anything except being a manic writer). So for the rest of the month I won’t be posting any reviews. Instead I’ll have them scheduled for November and spaced out so there is something to read. Plus I’ll try and pop in and do some Memes every week. I’m also organising the next Must Reads now which will be Must Reads: Books on Writing (how appropriate).
You can follow me on the website here or click the banner up top and they are going to have word count widgets which I’ll see if they are WordPress friendly.
Are you or anyone else taking part in NaNoWriMo? Would you like a writing buddy? Let me know!
