NaNoWriMo

Today starts National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). While I’ve heard of NaNoWriMo before, this year will be my first time in participating in the event. Basically, for those unaware, it’s a month long event in November where participants are encouraged to write about1,600 words a day, every day, toward a goal of 50,000 by the end of the month. The idea is that (starting from scratch) one will have a complete or near complete novel by the end—minus edits and such as all participants are asked to send their internal editor on vacation and just write like mad.

Seeing as I started my steampunk novel several months ago and hit a brick wall, I’m deciding to be a NaNo “rebel” and use the month to do some re-writes and push on from where I left off. I need this and hopefully when the dust settles I will have a large chunk of my story written in hope the momentum will carry over after November so I can finish.  I’ll be honest, I’m both excited and nervous as I’m not sure what this month will look like as far as writing every day, but I think I’m up for the challenge.

Wish me luck everyone!
