I’m going to do NaNoWriMo this year, and that’s going to take just about all of my creative and writing energy for the month of November.
I’m not shutting my blog down for a month! No way! But I will be going to a Monday Wednesday Friday schedule of posting starting tomorrow and continuing through the month of November.
If you’re not familiar with NaNoWriMo, it’s an event in which participants try to write 50,000 words in a month. 50,000 words is technically a novel by itself, though most novels run closer to 100,000 words.
Writing 50,000 words a month means 1,667 per day, which is possible, but not easy, especially when you have a full time job and a kiddo. That’s why assign event like NaNoWriMo is so helpful. We get encouragement and solidarity with the other people who are doing it.
