On November 1, I’m going to get up early and type 1667 words and I’m going to do that every day for 30 days until I reach 50,000 words. You might already know what I’m talking about, but in case you don’t, I’ve signed up for the National Novel Writing Month, which takes place every year during the month of November. You can learn more about NaNoWriMo here.
This is my first time participating officially online. I’m excited, but a little unsure how I’m going to carve out the time. I figure once I get started, I’ll build some momentum and be able to keep those words flowing.
I’ve also signed up for a NaNoWriMo 101 Zoom class at our library, to help me prepare. I haven’t decided how much of a pantser I’m going to be, probably 100%! The website has lots of resources, pep talks, benchmarks to celebrate and regional groups you can join. Some of my work friends are also signed up, so I think we’ll have fun comparing our experiences!
I’m not going into this thinking I’ll write the next Great American Novel, although wouldn’t that be nice? I’m just doing it to have fun and stay creative.
Are you a NaNoWriMo author? Have you signed up this year? Leave a comment and tell me about your experience.
