While out at the Podcast and New Media expo this last year, I was talking to Darusha Wehm about my plans for a novel that I wanted to write. Well, after the expo Darusha remembered about my idea to write, and told me about the NaNoWriMo (National Write a Novel Month).
NaNoWriMo is more of a personal challenge than anything to write a 50,000 word novel with in the month of November. The describe it as, “a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30.”
So, I had already started writing (only about 500 words) when she told me about NaNoWriMo, so I stopped and waited for Nov 1st to start. So far I have to say it is fun. I find my self driven to write, and have a goal to work towards.
Now, will I make the 50,000 word goal? Dunno, but I am really trying to get there. My main objective besides trying to hit the 50,000 word mark is to at least write everyday in november. If I can do that…I felt like I won.
Thanks Darusha for pointing this out to me.
