If you haven’t heard of National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo it’s a fun yet insane challenge to write a novel (defined as 50,000 words) in a single month – November – which conveniently has only 30 days. NaNoWriMo has been happening for about 15 years and it’s grown from a handful of people to hundreds of thousands of people world wide who, through the aid of coffee, left-over Halloween Candy and late night word wars, commit themselves to write 50,000 words in 30 days.
From 2000 – 2009 I had been one of these crazy ones who jumped into this challenge but I haven’t participated since 2009. This year I’m armed with caffeine and a plot line and I’m ready to start writing on November 1st with all of the others. Stay tuned!
