Autumn is here and that has me thinking of NaNoWriMo which starts in just a few weeks. I love NaNo. The Second Life of Magnolia Mae was written during camp NaNo. I like being able to write and post my word counts. I enjoy cheering on other writers as they work to complete their novels.
I wasn’t sure if I would participate this November because I still have not replaced my computer. Yesterday while at the store I saw some hardcover bound journals marked down to $2. I picked up 4 of them and decided I would write my story for NaNo in them. I have also decided that I need to finish Man in the Mist so I can start a fresh story on November 1.
I have always wanted to write a Christmas story but I have a hard time writing one during the spring and summer. I decided that now that it’s colder, the stores are setting out Christmas items, and snow will be falling before the end of November that it is time for me to write a Christmas story. So when the first of the month comes I will be sitting down at the table with a cup of hot tea and my hardcover journals so I can participate in National Novel Writing Month.
Are you (have you) participated in NaNoWriMo? Do you find the idea of writing a novel from start to finish in one month intimidating? I know I did the first time I joined in.
