So I signed up to NaNoWriMo, which is the National Novel Writing Month. It’s my first year as a participant and to be honest, I think it will be quite the challenge. I’ll be on my workterm during the program, so it’ll be somewhat of a rush to me. I’m a little worried I won’t be able to finish 50,000 words in time, but I’m going to try my hardest!
I think this is a great program to get people involved with writing. It’s not only forcing you to push yourself to your limits, but it provides both new and old writers with a great experience that will really get them motivated. There’s so much practice to gain from this program, not to mention the fact that if you aren’t already completely familiar with the keys on your computer, you will be afterwards. : )
I haven’t found any ideas yet, but I’m going to follow my old strategies and brainstorm a bit. I have a whole month to think about the kind of story I want to write, after all.
What about you guys? Is anyone out there signed up or excited about the upcoming National Novel Writing Month? I’d really love to get some helpful hints about the program myself from anyone who has joined it in previous years, and would also like to hear what newcomers like myself have to say about it. Drop me a comment and tell me what you think/love/look forward to!
Take care everyone. 🙂
