To NaNoWriMo or not to NaNoWriMo

2 Oct

Since I want to try and have a first draft of WEIRDO completed this month, I had decided to bypass National Novel Writing Month this year. I have tried NaNoWriMo three times and have successfully finished it once. I figured that writing one book in October I’d give myself a break in November, especially since I’m just getting back into the habit of writing on a regular basis. But ……NaNoWriMo is so much FUN! So I signed up.

I have a rough idea of what I want to write. It’s the first in a series that’s been kicking around in my head for about two years now. Actually, when I have bouts of insomnia, I “write” this book in my head as I’m trying to sleep, so it’s pretty thought out. All I have to do for the outline is write the stuff down.

Anyone wanting to buddy up with me on the NaNoWriMo site I go by celtic_aura there.

Oh, for those who have no idea what I’m nattering on about, NaNoWriMo  is a writing event where authors try to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. Yes, we’re all nuts, but we’re very supportive of it.

Happy writing!

    I really want to take part! But more importantly, I want to finish the story I am currently writing (and that is cheating).
    So I will have my own little NoFiMo (Novel finishing month).
    good luck!
