NaNoWriMo

What is NaNoWriMo?  National Novel Writing Month.  When is it?  November.  Who is doing it?  (looking around shyly) Me! So you should too!  Why?  Every year thousands of people participate in NaNoWriMo in hopes to start a book, finish a book, whatever.  Where?  NaNoWriMo.org

I've been talking with my husband and kids and they all think that I should take part in NaNo this year.  I'm kind of reluctant, but it's an idea I've been toying with and this seems like an ideal time to at least make an attempt.  I can't devote a lot of time to it and I really don't expect to walk away with a novel at the end of the month, but I think it'll be fun to try my hand at something new.  It'll mean eating my words though.  My aunts have been telling me I need to write a book and I keep telling them "I'm a consumer, not a producer!"

Are you taking part?  Want to be writing buddies?  My profile is located here.

Awesome! I've done NaNoWriMo for the past few years, and I was really on the fence as to whether or not to participate again. I think I've been persuaded, but I'm still not too sure what I'll be writing about. It really is a lot of fun though and the best advice I can give is to be sure to write every day. You'll be surprised how easy it is to get on a roll and crank out the daily 1667 words, but on some days when you really don't want to write if you can even make yourself sit and write 2- or 300 words it's a big help in not falling behind. (I also try to get 2K/day in for the first few days to give myself a cushion). Hope you have a wonderful time with it!

I'm doing Nano this year! It's my very first year so I'm a bit nervous and kinda hoping the writing comes easy for me! I've been dying to start writing again so this is the perfect opportunity :)

Autumn I'd love to be your buddy. How do we hook up on line for that do you know? Do we just sign up as buddies so we can send encouragement to each other. I won't be able to meet with my regional group b/c I don't have Wi-Fi on my computer.
