Nanowrimo – Best month of the year November 1, 2007

In addition to having the best weather of the year (in my opinion)  November is also National Novel Writing Month or in other words NaNoWriMo.

 National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30.

When I was in high school, several of my friends got me started with Nanowrimo and I have participated every year since.  It’s a great opportunity for people who have always wanted to write a story but never seem to know when to start.  It also is a short time frame and the emphasis is on quantity not quality.  This is to encourage a rough draft.  And the best rough drafts occur when someone just pours the story onto the paper, not worrying about what may be strange or unfounded.

Unfortunately, I’ve never reached that ever illusive goal of 50,000 words.  This year will be different.  Please excuse me if my blog posts suffer, and rest assured that my writing is going towards a worthy cause.
