Nanowrimo Or What To Do With My November

Nanowrimo is National Novel Writing Month. To quote from the site:

National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30.

It's all about the writing. For 30 days, you write whenever, wherever and whatever you can towards a 50,000 word novel. Yes, 50,000 in 30 days.

I'm going to make a go of it this year. This will be my first time and I'm looking forward to the challenge with anxiety and excitement. I know one other writer, a veteran of Nanowrimo. I'm hoping for daily encouragement from her and to do likewise.

This blog post is both to clue you in about Nanwirmo and to clue you in that I'm participating and would deeply appreciate support. If you know me, I gladly invite prayers, happy thoughts, well wishes, as well as Diet Pepsi, and various snacks. Feel free to provide any and all. Also welcome are blog posts and comments to encourage me along the way, and keep me honest.

Obviously asking for a cheering section out there. I'm making no promises but that I'll give it a try.

To close out this post, I challenge any and all of you to consider visiting Nanowrimo and give it a go.
