Or NaNoWriMo for short.
If you have never heard of NaNoWriMo, it is an annual writing challenge which encourages you to write daily and hopefully eventually you end up with a novel. Simply put anyway. There are progress badges which I think are fun and even sponsors and offers. These I have not looked into that much, because my goal is just to write. I think the site wide word count is 50,000 by the end of the month, which I think it pretty doable. If I am wrong about any of this, please correct me. As you can probably tell I have not fully read the website, so apologies for that!
I attempted to partake in NaNoWriMo last year, but unfortunately fell ill right at the start of November and fell so far behind it became impossible to catch up. This year I got my cold out of the way nice and early, so I am going to attempt to start and finish it this year.
In my wallowing state yesterday, I found myself laying on the floor, looking at an app on my phone. This triggered an idea in my mind which I thought would make a good line in a book and from that line I have put together a plot and now with my idea in mind, I am ready to go!
I will not be documenting my writing daily on WordPress, as I do not want it to become tiresome or boring for yourselves. Instead it will all be written in on the NaNoWriMo website. I am not sure if my writing can be publicly shared on there, but if it can I will find out and let you know.
I am getting excited already and I hope to take this story all the way.
Wish me luck! And if you are participating too, let me know. I would love to know your ideas. Good luck to those who are taking this journey too.
Until next time, get to writing!
