National Novel Writing Month

Is anyone else out there getting geared up for the National Novel Writing Month of November? If you don't know what I'm talking about check out the NaNoWriMo forum here and my entries to my old blog about it last year here. Basically it's a challenge to amateur and professional writers everywhere to write a 50,000 word novel in a month. It's a lot of fun and if you'd like to join all of the information is at the link I posted above. Last year I made it by the skin on my teeth. This year I'm going into it far more prepared. I'd been writing my character sketches, time lines and plots out for a week now. There's only a month to go and the excitement is already building. I absolutely love NaNoWriMo! So wish me luck. I'll be updating on my progress regularly throughout November. :)


  1. I've thought about doing NaNoWriMo several times in the past, but never actually done it.

    I'd love to do it sometime, but really don't think I'd end up making it this year, w/ all the other stuff I have on my plate right now.

    I am going to try and make some solid writing goals for my blog and a few of the other projects I have going on. I wasn't as consistent w/ my blog this summer as I wanted to be, and have some things for it (and other projects) that I've been meaning to sit down and write for a few months. I think this is the month to do it!

    Good luck with your novel!


  2. What a great idea, best of luck with it!! :) Do you ever have any of your writing published?

  3. I'm going to do NaNo this year too. It will be my first time. I only hope I'll manage to finish!

  4. Oh my God - you're doing it too?! HOORAY!! I decided to give it a go for the first time this year - and am so happy now to have at least 1 "friend" doing it too - won't feel so lonely!

    Gosh - you're very organised - I haven't done ANYTHING to prepare for it (other than drag myself to sign up!)!!!! :-)
