Today begins the month-long writing marathon known as NanoWrimo, or National Novel Writing Month. The objective is to write 50,000 words this month, without editing. Just WRITE!
Yes,I’m participating. A few years ago I started a novel and then put it aside while writing another. Adirondack Moon is what I currently have named it, although that may change once the story is finished. The story keeps calling me to finish it, and that is what I intend to work on this month. So last night I spent a couple of hours reading the first 8 chapters of the book. That is what I had completed before putting it aside. I even have a pretty good outline for the rest of the story, although reading it now, there are a few twists and turns I’d like to add.
I’m planning to post my word count here, perhaps with a cute little Nano widget, but the point is to give myself a little push to get those words down on paper.
Let me know if you are doing Nano this year!
