NaNoWriMo… Year 3!

   Posted by: Faith   in NaNoWriMo

So, it’s my third year doing National Novel Writing Month. I’m running the show in our community this year, and while it was kind of hectic and insane to figure everything out at first, I’m breathing easier now that the month has started. Plus, we seem to have a great group of people — at least, that’s what I gathered from the kick-off!

Tonight is our first write-in, which I’m looking forward to. A pile of writers, huddled at their laptops, clutching mugs of coffee, in the middle of a small cafe? I anticipate at least a few curious onlookers and perhaps even some questions.

Thus said, my posts may be even more sporadic for the month, beyond word count updates and the occasional book review. But never fear! I shall return with plenty of insights (ie. my own ramblings) once November rolls itself out of existence for another year. Then, I’ll have lots of self-editing and revisions to do… so I have no doubt there’ll be posts concerning that as well.

If you’re NaNo-ing this year, good luck to you! If you’re working on other projects this November, I hope it’s smooth sailing and you’re able to stay productive! Let’s make this an incredible November, regardless of what we’re working on.

Happy Writing, everyone!

You’re doing NaNo, being local headmistress, AND planning to read and review books? Go, You!

Have a great Wednesday–and everything else, till we blog again. :) TX

Texanne – Thanks! Lol… I think I thrive on taking on too much… it’s just part of my nature, I suppose…! Heh.

Melissa – Thank you! So far so good… I’m always so amazed and so thankful at how great not only the local communities are, but also the online community at the website. Writers really do look out for one another!

Susan – It was! We had 6 people out, and one new person join up on the spot, which was very encouraging. Everyone made at least a bit of progress, so I consider it a success :) Thanks!
