NaNoWriMo is Here
Yes, it is that time of the year for writers everywhere. National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) has officially kicked off and everyone is plugging away at their chosen projects. Even me, which is amazing since I did not really have an idea until about two weeks before. At least, it was not a solid idea, and not just one not really a solid idea, either.
This year, I wanted to try and take this to a more social level. I had tried it last year to some extent, attending a couple of write ins in the area. This year, I went to one pre-NaNo planning session, and the regional kick off party/write in (which broke attendance records and took over a whole part of the coffee house we were meeting in).
Naturally, with NaNoWriMo, word counts are important, especially when everyone is working on getting their count to 50,000 words by the end of November. And, thankfully, I have hit the ground running, accumulating 11,050 words since 12:01 am November 1st. That’s pretty good for a shaky sequel idea.
