NaNoWriMo

by Ben on November 4, 2008

So I decided to write a novel this month. Yes that’s right. Some time ago a friend of mine told me about NaNoWriMo, which stands for National Novel Writing Month. Apparently this is the 10th year its been going on, each year occurring in November. The basic gist of it is that people all over the nation (and probably world) commit to writing a 50,000 word novel in a single month. The object is to just sit down and write, so you can say you’ve done it. Unless you just sit down and start writing, well, there are too many excuses that get in the way.

Well, I happened to stumble upon the website today, so this was more of an impulsive choice on my part, but I am excited to do it. I was hesitant to mention it on my blog, in the fear that I will fail in my endeavor. But then again, I thought it might be fun to journal my experiences doing it. I’m getting kind of a late start, beginning three days in, but that’s okay. I just started, so I’m pretty low on words, just 614 at the moment. That being said, I’m going to get back to writing. I’ll let you know how it goes…
