Oh yes, this is happening. So, I know I was mostly using this for book reviews, but I decided to expand out into all areas of my bookish life. So here is my announcement that I am participating in the National Novel Writing Month 2014! I am pretty excited and yet terrified. This will be my first year participating in this insane project and I am not very confident in my ability to write the full 50,000 words.
For those who don’t know this is what the National Novel Writing Month (from here on out NaNoWriMo) is all about straight from the website:
“National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.
Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought fleetingly about writing a novel.”
I so far have an idea, a main character, and a rough (very rough) plot idea. My plan is to take the next few weeks and organize my self. I’m both nervous and excited, and will probably use this space in November to update on my progress and any hurdles I’ve encountered (which I imagine will be numerous).
crazy creative? Come join!
