NaNoWriMo - Ahh!

Saturday, October 30, 2010

Have you guys heard of NaNoWriMo?  Basically, people sign up on the web site and pledge to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November.  It's all about quantity, not quality, so writers are encouraged to just write and not worry about how sucky the writing is!  Well, this year I think I'll participate...


Ahh!  I'm nervous that I'll fail, but at least I'm giving it a shot and that's all that counts, right?  I don't consider myself a writer by any stretch of the imagination, but I've always liked writing and hoped to form some words into chapters one day.  Now's my chance!  Maybe I'll post some excerpts for you guys, if I'm not too embarassed.

Come on, all you wannabe writers, go sign up!  We start at midnight on November 1st and have until 11:59 p.m. on November 30th to complete our novels!

Hmm, I just realized that I'm going to be on the road (Florida, then NYC, then NC) most of the month of November, so this will be a struggle, but I'm up for the challenge.  Are you?
