November 1st is coming fast. And with it comes NaNoWriMo! Woohoo!!!
NaNoWriMo is short for "National Novel Writer's Month". It's an annual event that takes place in November. Over the course of the 30 days of November, writers from all over the world get together, virtually speaking, to write their hearts out to reach the 50,000 word goal.
50,000 words in 30 days may sound unreasonable or out of reach, but it's do-able for many people with some dedication and self-discipline. That actually comes to 1,667 words per day. I'm sure I'm not the only one who writes more than that in emails each day. he he
I'm hoping to add a widget to my blog as we get closer to the 1st so others can watch my progress if they feel so inclined. (Just waiting for the widgets to be updated to 2012.) If you're a fellow WriMo, find me on the NaNo site as userID "xandert" and we can be writing buddies.
So, are YOU up to the challenge of NaNoWriMo? If so, join in the fun!
