NaNoWriMo is Baaaack!

Some writer I am, right? Not even remembering that this is National Novel Writing Month, i.e., thirty days and nights of literary abandon! Last year, if you can remember back that far, I made it to 30-something thousand words, but the good thing is that I actually got a completed novel out of that story, […]

Writing While Waiting

Although NaNoWriMo finished last November when my cumulative word total  was a mere 36,880, I wanted to post an update. Just because NaNoWriMo finished in 30 days didn’t mean that I stopped writing (nor should you if you did try the 30 day challenge).

NaNoWriMo Finale!

Ok so 30 days of “literary abandon” morphed into something else entirely.

I am FREAKING out…especially considering that I’ve split up my word count into two novels. Whoa! Yep you read that right – it’s now […]

NaNoWriMo Update – Day 11

Ok, so maybe the “manic” part hasn’t really started – usually that’s when things start getting down to the wire. I’m pretty sure that the thought of penning […]

National Novel Writing Month – NaNoWriMo

A friend clued me in to this “contest” and I think it’s a really neat idea. Next month is the National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo, which is described as a “fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing” where anyone can participate with the goal of completing a 50,000 word novel written between November 1 and […]
