NaNoWriMo

Its that time again. NaNoWriMo begins in a few days and I’m thinking about doing it.

I go thru this every year and am feeling ambiguous about it.

What is NaNoWriMo?  The “National Novel Writing Month” organization hosts a website where you can challenge yourself to write a novel (50,000 words) within 30 days – specifically, from November 1st to the 30th.  There is no competition, except with yourself, and it can be grueling, but ultimately a LOT of fun.

I “won” the contest in 2004 and 2005, and have attempted to do it again since then, but life has been pretty busy the past few Novembers and I didn’t follow thru.

I love the NaNoWriMo and love being challenged. Hm. Maybe I’ll do it this year.

Want to do it with me?

  1. If only I had any novel writing ability, I totally would. I know you say it doesn’t have to be good, but still–I don’t even know where to begin to write something that long. It’s a good idea though. November is such a busy month to do something like that too, though. Hmmm…I’m seriously considering this. Will let you know.
