Are you ready for NaNoWriMo?

National Novel Writing Month
National Novel Writing Month

This year I’ve decided to participate in NaNoWriMo officially – how about you guys?

I went back and forth about which novel to actually apply to this project and finally decided on Book 4 in the Portia Adams Adventures because I find I am writing it in my head almost every day – might as well harness that power!

For those of you who don’t know what NaNoWriMo IS, let me explain: its a month-long (November) writing project where you and all the other writers participating track and upload your word count progress. The idea is that you and every other writer registered uses the shared momentum of writing a certain amount every day to motivate us ALL to really crank out 50k of words in 30 days.

I’m pretty excited, especially when I read about all the other books being worked on (some of them look AWESOME) and I’m curious to see if this makes me write even faster (I already write pretty fast I am told).

Who else is in? Send me a comment and I will add you as a ‘Buddy’ on the NaNoWriMo page!

  1. I’m doing NaNo for the third time. I usually get to 20,000 words and reach the end of my story. Then I have to go back and add stuff. But I managed to reach the target last time, to my surprise and delight. I’m happy to be a buddy (I’m MiriamDrori on the site) although so far nothing has ever come out of having buddies. What has been great is meeting up and writing together with other local participants.

      1. My first novel wasn’t a NNWM, but it took me three weeks short of three years to write it, and about 18 months to proofread and revise, so I’m probably on schedule. 😉

        See you there!
