Today’s NaNoWriMo Eve, the one day of the year where thousands of writers are preparing their ideas, reviewing their notes and outlines and beginning to panic about writing a 50k word novel during the month of November. I’ve been participating in NaNoWriMo or National Novel Writing Month since the afternoon in undergrad when I stumbled across a copy of No Plot, No Problem by Chris Baty in my local Books-A-Million (or since 2008). Though I’ve competed for the last couple of years, I have yet to actually win NaNo.
It seems like every November, I suddenly become too busy to write. So instead of officially participating in NaNo, I’m going to try something different. Instead of writing a 50k word novel, I’m going to be blogging every day in November. Yes, you heard me, I’m going to be updating this here blog everyday. I wrote down a list of topics that I want to cover during the month so I have no excuse not to update. In addition to blogging, I will continue to work on the project I’m working on with Cara and another WIP I have going.
For everyone participating in NaNoWriMo, I’d like to wish you good luck! You got this!
