Last year I participated in my first NaNoWriMo – “National Novel Writing Month” is a worldwide collaboration among writing creatives that has gone on every year since 1999!
This year? To quote from their site:
On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.
Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel.
Last year I got to 55,000 words which became my third installment in the Immortal War Series, A Killing Time. I ended up at our local Panera Bread and met some fun Lancaster County writers working at their projects next to the fireplace. Good conversations were had and encouragement passed around throughout the month.
This year, I’ll be working on the second book in my Halloran’s War series of Military Sci-Fi. You interested in trying your hand at a novel? NaNoWriMo is a great way to challenge yourself and see how many words you can “let flow” in a month!
Maybe I’ll see you at the fireplace at Panera on Tuesdays in November between 7 and 9pm.
