NaNoWriMo is: National (presumably it refers to the U.S. but they welcome everyone) Novel Writing Month.
Starting Nov. 1, you write and write and write every day… until you’ve reached 50,000 words by Nov. 30. Simple! Well…
To help you in your endeavour, the NaNoWriMo website offers forums, blogs, tips, ideas and a word counter. (You scramble your writing and upload it to the website where it is counted and promptly deleted.) Your word count then goes into the pool for your city. Or just for yourself.
Obviously, this is something we can “just do ourselves, anyway,” right?
But… do we? No. If life was that simple, there wouldn’t be Weight Watchers. Or spin classes.
Or Chocoholics Anonymous. (Note to self: Start Chocoholics Anonymous.)
See? The ideas are flowing already and it’s not even November yet!
Sign up for NaNoWriMo and get inspired. Do it now. Before November. Because in November you’ll be, like, “Oh, it’s already started — I’m behind… I can’t possibly catch up… I’ll do it next year.”
Just like you said when you were trying to kick your chocolate habit. Uh-huh. Here’s the link again: NaNoWriMo.
By the way, there’s a kids’ forum as well so no excuses if you’re not “this tall.”
