For those who may not be aware, NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month. Every November, writers of every age and from every genre are encouraged to write 50 000 words in one month. This year, I've decided to sign up and give it a go.
I debated back and forth about this decision as I am in the process of editing my current manuscript and hope to have this edit done around the end of the month. You'd think that would be perfect timing right. Well, it will still need one last edit afterwards and that is where November is going to get dicey.
However, it is a great opportunity to get another WIP underway, and when my eyes glaze over from one, I can switch to the other. There's such a big difference between writing and editing that I'm hoping the distraction from one to the other will be a positive thing.
If you're a writer and want to give it a go, be sure to check out the NaNoWriMo website
and sign up. You still have time to prepare. The fun, and agony, begins November 1st.
