What will you be doing on November 1st and all the days of November? If you are a NANOWRIMO fan, you just might be pounding out the golden lines of a novel. If you haven’t heard of it, November is National Novel Writing Month. For the past four Novembers, I have engaged in the frenzy of attempting to write a 50,000-word novel in a short 30-day period (that’s approximately 1,667 words per day).

I made it the first three years, but last year, I didn’t.  I wasn’t quite as focused.  But this year, I am fired up again. So, stop by the website for National Novel Writing Month and see what it’s all about.

In a nutshell, you write, write, and write some more. It’s great practice in moving forward. There just isn’t time to edit — save that for December. So, let me know if you’re going to be doing Nano this year and I’ll watch for you on the site.

  1. Will you be posting your progress in any form or do we have to wait to buy the finished novel? Can’t imagine what a huge task this will be in such a short period of time!

      I’ll either put a link to my page on NanoWriMow so you can check my word count over there or I’ll put a counter in the right column of this page. I’ll let you know which I decide to do. I went over yesterday and started to dust off my page on Nano from last year. Getting close now.

    So excited! I only made it halfway through last year, but I hope to be a winner this year. I need to get my outline done WAY ahead of time, though, so I’m ready to just write.

      Two weeks to go…. plenty of time to polish up that outline. I’m getting excited. I love the challenge of it.
