I’m Taking Part In NaNoWriMo

I’m taking part in NaNoWriMo!!
NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month – but these days it’s pretty international. The month is November and the task is to write 50,000 words in that time, which roughly equates to the size of a novel.
The idea is not to write a perfect novel, but to write 50K words of a rough draft, so you have something that you can work from after November is over. It’s for people that have always said they wanted to write a novel: just do it!
50K words equates to 1,667 words per day. That isn’t nothing but should be do-able. Nicole at It’s All About Writing, suggests writing more to start with, when you’re still keen, then building it down so that the last day of November, you only have to write one word! It sounds reasonable. Check her post here.
I haven’t got any firm plans on what to write, but write I will. Since by writing this post I’ve made it public, I can’t drop out anymore, can I?
So, I’m Leeswammes on NaNoWriMo too. Look me up and if you’re also participating, become my buddy!
Have you heard of NaNoWriMo?
