|National Novel Writing Month|
I've never done NaNoWriMo before. For the past four Novembers, I've been a teacher, and with November being the second-to-last month before the school year ends, it's one of the most insanely busy months of the year!
But THIS YEAR, I should finally have time to participate. Indeed, as a full-time writer, 50,000 words in one month should be a piece of cake! Although ... I've recently finished writing a 90,000 word novel, and I'll be concluding the blog tour promotions for it on the 29th of October, so it's possible I'll enter November completely exhausted ...
Nevertheless, I've signed up and I'm ready to go! (Sort of. I've been planning this contemporary romance story in my head since a plane flight more than two years ago, but I haven't written down an ACTUAL plan/plot yet. Hello, pantsing!!)
If you're doing NaNo this year and want to add me as your writing buddy, you can find me here.
Oh, and have you seen the writing project Grammarly is undertaking this year?
"We’re accepting submissions through October 25, 2013 from writers at all levels who would like to contribute to a community-written novel. Signing up with your email address will add you to the queue of authors planning to help write the novel, and Grammarly will notify you when it is your turn to contribute up to 800 words to your assigned chapter."
What do you think? Is that something you'd like to take part in?
