As Amy over at Hello Better Than Ever Reminded me in her post November is National Novel Writing Month. There is a great bunch of people over at NaNoWriMo.org who put on a whole event for it and make a great community to reach a goal of 50,000 words by the end of the month. I've watched this in years past and never done it because I was just too scared to even contemplate letting people read anything I've written, or even know that I write, but over the past month I've opened up to all of you on here and I've tried to let that go.
In less than 3 weeks I'm going to turn 30. This is often marked as a transition point in people's lives where they essentially embrace their adulthood. So it's time to put on the big girl panties and take a deep breath and take the plunge.
Now here's where I try to drag as many of you with me as humanly possible (there's safety in numbers dontcha know!). It's free and there are no strings attached. It's all about the word count and no one will be judging your work(or even actually see it if you don't want them to), so there is no pressure, and all of us do so much writing on here and have so much creativity that I would love to see what we all come up with
Let's see how many of us out here in blog land can be novelists by Yule!
As a side note if you want a great free book download on the NaNoWriMo experience and tips on how to make it through check out NaNo for the New and Insane it's an amusing read and really helpful.
