NaNoWriMo

Does anyone do NaNoWriMo? For those of you who don't know, it is Nationa November/Novel Writing Month. There is a challenge to all of those who feel a novel inside them- to write a 50,000 worded first draft in a month. 30 days. Its nuts, but quite invigorating. And its about the quantity, not quality.

I don't know if you ever tried to write a novel. But I have. And I know that you get so stuck trying to make it perfect, with every line sounding smart and whatever. And then you get to page ten, and thats it. Nothing comes out.

NaNoWriMo is the thing to challenge that writers block. It is just for fun, and you can write about anything. I decided to take the challenge this year- but of course got side-tracked with midterms. So I'm up to 9,000 words instead of 25,000. Bit of a problem, eh? lol.

It is a great way to express yourself. And mine's totally kosher, don't worry. Its YA.

Woohoo! Go NaNoWriMo! Personally, I tried it last year but couldn't finish, and this year was going to be too busy during the month of November to even try, but good luck! Can I read it when you're done? ;-)

lol- well see how it comes out. I am WAYY behind, so like.. I don't know. But I have another much better novel in the works- its just much darker and I'm kind of at a blank on that.

Sounds awesome, when you finish I want an autographed copy.

I have no patience for novels. Short stories are more up my alley.

wow, nice background.
I actually started this November... and I think I have 5,000 words done. Just too busy. Maybe I'll swap for January Novel Writing. :-/
