It’s that time again. The time when hundreds of thousands of writers take to their notebooks and computers in order to write 50,000 words in a month. It’s an honorable endeavor and while many people may not make it to the finish line, that doesn’t mean it has to be the end of the road. There are still 11 other months in the year. Still it is a fun way to encourage writers to make time to write and relieve them of the burden of editing in the process.

So, while I am not personally participating in NaNoWriMo, I would like to show my support to everyone who is by saying good luck. I can’t wait to read the hundreds of thousands of novels that will be born out of this, whether good or bad. Now I’m off to workout and maybe jot down my 1,666 words for the day. ūüôā

Hello everyone!  Today is November 1, and you all know what that means, this is the first day of NanoWriMo, the month authors from everywhere try to write a 50,000 word novel in a month. 

Now I’m not actually¬†participating in NanoWriMo¬†this year.¬† I’ve decided to continue focusing on my novel, but in honor of NanoWriMo, I’ve given myself only til the end of the month to finish my second re-write.¬† So I’ll be participating too…in a way….hey this counts.

So to everyone who actually registered good luck!  And to those who are unofficially participating, like myself, maybe next year well actually have the gull to register and participate for real. :p

But seriously, I hope everybody accomplishes what they set out to this month and if you aren’t going to try this absolutely insane endeavor, maybe you can do what Natalie Whipple is doing over at Between Fact and Fiction.¬† She is do a NanoriMo (National Reading Month).¬† She has set aside the month to catch up on all the novels she has yet to read.

So good luck to all and I hope you all find your pencil!  It might take me awhile.

I’m going to leave you today with a song from a band I just recently discovered and decided I love.
