I’m sure most of you know what NaNoWriMo is but for those of you that don’t, it stands for National Novel Writing Month. It takes place every year from November 1-30. Basically on November 1st you start writing a novel with the goal of finishing with 50,000 words by the 30th. If you’re interested in participating but want more details, check this out!
For years I have wanted to participate in NaNoWriMo but could never ever think of anything to write about. I would come up with a possible story and it either bored me or I couldn’t think of how to make the story work. I actually signed up in 2009 with the full intention of at least attempting to write a novel but nothing came of it. I could not come up with anything good enough.
This year is different. I was determined to participate this year but once again, I couldn’t think of anything! It was really frustrating me. Then all of a sudden, an idea hit me! I couldn’t believe it. I finally had an idea that was actually good. I immediately took out some paper and start writing down my idea so I wouldn’t forget. As I was writing, more details started popping into my head. I think this year is going to be great. I may not get 50,000 but I am going to try my very best! Now that I have my idea, I am so psyched to get started writing on Saturday!
Is anybody else participating in NaNoWriMo this year?
