NaNoWriMo is almost here. For those of you who don’t know, November is the designated
National Novel Writing Month!
The goal is to complete a novel (50,000 words) in one month. Thirty days. About 1,666 words a day. This year, I’m planning out my writing before hand. I’ll have the basic storyline before I even start typing. This year, I’m trying to do a story about a bunch of different characters whose stories all overlap. Yeah, I know, it’s been done before. But not by me!
In other news, I was writing in Joe’s Coffee Shop this morning when Chantal stopped by. She’s the only other person I’ve met here who has ever heard of NaNoWriMo. She also told me about a website that’s extremely helpful for us writer-wannabes. I’ve browsed it a bit and I think it’s a pretty darn useful site.
They also have quite a few competitions to enter. I know what I’ll be doing when I’m stuck indoors from the cold. (I think it’s going to get quite cold here. I’m glad I brought my coat.)
If what I write is any good, I’ll try to go ahead and post it here. We shall see, we shall see.
November is just a few days away and the glove has been thrown down. You know who you are. The game is on.
