NaNoWriMo

Last Day of NaNo

Today I am combining my Wednesday writer’s blog and my Friday personal blog because this concerns both. This week I made a difficult decision about my writing. I had planned on doing NaNoWriMo this month and had tried to complete. However, this year things didn’t go so well. I had so much on my mind and was so busy; I just couldn’t get the words to come. I wrote a lot of words but they didn’t make sense.

Finally Started

I finally got started with NaNoWriMo yesterday, which is why I’m a day late on this post. I know have 811 words and I should have over 13,000. It seems like a lot but I know I can overcome it. I find NaNo to be an interesting challenge in getting all the words written, but this year I had trouble getting started. I started the month working a booth at a conference over nine hours a day. The result is this week I’m trying to find my words through exhaustion and through the emotional issues I fight when I’ve had long periods of time without sunlight.

My other problem this year is my story.

... Or Not To NaNo

It’s almost November and my writers’ groups are talking about NaNoWriMo.

For those who don’t know, that stands for National Novel Writing Month. NaNoWriMo is a challenge to write a 50,000 word novel during the month of November. When I first learned about the challenge I thought “no way can I do this.” But thanks to my pushing, prodding, shoving, and daring friends, I finally tried it one year. After participating for several years, I’ve learned some good reasons to NaNo and some good reasons not to NaNo.
