Two weeks from today signals the start of a month-long writing frenzy. Yep, folks, November is National Novel Writing Month. One full month in which you aim to write 50,000 words. That’s 1667 words per day. You write and write and write without stopping to edit (if you can) until you finish your first draft.
It’s a great motivator! I’ve participated the past two years and have had excellent word counts. Normally, I edit as I go, but during NaNo, I try hard not to… try being the operative word. LOL
So, are you up for NaNoing this year? What will you be writing? Do you have a particular genre you enjoy? Contemporary, Romance, thrillers, young adult? Any ideas as to characters and plot; conflict and resolution?
I’m hoping to finish books 2 and 3 of my Thunder Creek series (contemporary romantic suspense genre) by the end of October as book 4 is calling to me – quite loudly in fact. I haven’t even started it yet, so that would be an excellent NaNo project.
Whatever you decide, if you want to be a writer, then write. That’s the only way you’ll ever reach that goal and fulfill your dream. Happy writing!
