Welcome to your new novel
Yesterday I received an email from the organizers of NanoWriMo that my 2009 novel beckons. For those of you still unfamiliar with Nano and what it is all about, click here and read up.
I have participated every year I could, not to finish and get the cool badge, but to get in a serious amount of word count. The first year I did it, I wrote the bulk of Avenging Angel, and the second year, I wrote the bulk of a historical/paranormal YA, that as of yet has not gone anywhere.
I think this sort of "get in that writing chair" sort of competition has a great following because we all want SOMETHING to poke us and make us write. At least it works for me!
I hope this will be the year I use all this hard effort to turn out a 50,000 word count that turns into the best book of my life. I hope if you participate it is the same for you.
So here's to Nano and to all the people who will turn the entire month into a great big writing event. If you have a team, or want to be my friend on the forums etc. at the Nano site, look me up. I will friend you back. Let's make this year, the best year ever!
