Where wild minds come to rest
I know there's some real creative, and talented writers among us. Just wanted to know if anyone else is attempting NaNoWriMo this year?
National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing.
On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.
Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel."
I've "attempted" the goal for the last 3 years - never actual beat it by the time limit (for obvious MD reasons), but it's a fun activity to do and it gets some ideas down on the page and seeing your word count go up little by little is kinda motivating. Sometimes we need a little "push" to get us started...;-)
It says National. Does that mean it's for Ireland?
I could never finish a book in that little time though. Believe me I've tried soooo many times.
Nope, you can do it from anywhere in the world. I think it started in the US first and they never got round to changing the name.
Oh, I never finish, but I like the experience of the whole thing. It's kinda exciting. :)
I'm not but daughter is doing it. This is her second year - she wrote a 35,000 word novel last year and had it published (and she's just 12). I'm convinced she too has MD.
