Hello! With November fast approaching, I was curious whether any other Pinsiders participated in or would be interested in participating in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).
For those unfamiliar, it is a self-inflicted challenge (haha) to write 50,000 words of a novel (or any kind of written work - since the rules are self-imposed, they're pret-ty flexible) over the course of the month of November - 50k being the accepted "standard" for the lower limit of what constitutes a novel-length written work. The official website for the event is nanowrimo.org.
This will be my twelfth time doing NaNoWriMo. It's a ton of fun, if grueling - I've managed to miss the mark every time, yet I keep trying. I find it to be one of my best motivators for keeping up with writing regularly while trying to balance work and life (and pinball!), and I spend the eleven months between NaNos in eager anticipation of November 1st, daydreaming and planning all the while.
Will anyone else be making the attempt this year?
