November 1st marks the first day of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). During this month, writers challenge themselves to complete a 50,000-word novel by November 30th. There is even a website designed to keep track of this craziness! I apologize, in advance, to all of my friends, family, and co-workers who may suffer as I lose my mind. Hopefully, the writing will keep me secluded most of the time and it won’t be too taxing on all of you.
Those who’ve seen me during a pedometer challenge know how competitive I am, so the contest seems like the perfect way to get this novel out of my head and onto paper–in a hurry.
Thankfully, my plotting is complete and most of my characters built. This week I’ll flesh them out more and then I’m ready to go. Wish me luck!
