NaNoWriMo 2011

Now that the Readathon is over, I'll tell you about my next project.  NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month.  Once again, I plan to participate in the mania surrounding this event, which is all about writing the draft of a 50,000-word novel in 30 days.

Yes, it's possible.  I know because I've done it before — in 2007, 2008, and 2009 — and in every one of those years, I managed to reach the goal or exceed it.  This madness starts on November 1, a week from tomorrow.

Here's my NaNoWriMo 2011 blog, and the official National Novel Writing Month site where you can learn all about it and sign up, yourself.

Oh, by the way, The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern is a published NaNo-novel (click the title link to read about it).  Ah, yes, there is hope!

Oh, I didn't know that about The Night Circus. I just read it this month and found it exquisite. I wanted to turn from the last page back to the first and start over but Ed was standing there waiting for me to hand it over so he could get it in the library drop box before they opened that morning. But wanting to reread a story is saying something coming from me as I've got such a large TBR growing faster than I can shrink it as it is.

so glad to see you jumping in this year
