NaNoWriMo badge

Have you heard of NaNoWriMo? This crazy acronym stands for National Novel Writing Month, a “a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing” as the website states. This year, I decided to join the other 300,000 folks crazy enough to try to write 50,000 words in 30 days. Deciding to be a participant is all for the joy of writing for a goal and hitting the word count more than writing for a specific publishable purpose. One day writing a novel may be just the thing I long to do but for now I just want to write write write. Though I’ve officially joined the quest this year (check out the very official badge on my sidebar!) I’m breaking the rules by not writing a fictional novel (tsk tsk). So what will I be writing instead? Journal entries, blog posts, random quips, awful poetry. Anything that gets the thoughts out of my head and onto paper (or the computer).

So many words are left unsaid most of the time. I wonder what it will be like, for just this month, to set them free. I’ll let you know how it goes…

  1. Ahhh I love that you’re doing this! I’m trying to do this this year as well. I am trying to write a novel though, even though I know what I churn out in 30 days sure as hell won’t be publishable by any stretch of the imagination! Keep us updated on how you get on! And good luck!


  2. That’s awesome, Charlotte! If you want to be writing buddies my handle is NatanyaHavivaGreen. Good luck darling!
