News, On Writing

NaNoWriMo starts tomorrow!

As you can tell, I am excited.  What is NaNoWriMo, you ask?  November is National Novel Writing Month, where people from all over do the impossible:  write a novel of 50,000 + words in one month.  It’s crazy, and it’s sometimes impossible, given the demands on your time.  There’s no cash prize at the end, just the satisfaction of knowing that you did it.  But it’s also REALLY FUN!  There is nothing like living inside your novel for a month and experiencing the thrill of creating something completely new. And at the end of the month, even if you don’t quite make the word count, you have a rough draft of a story that you can polish and turn into something truly wonderful.  So, let the dishes pile up, and put all those books you planned to read on hold.  Get ready to dive into your own special world.  Good luck, fellow writers!
