It’s getting close to that time of year… No, not the holidays! National Novel Writing Month!
I’ve done no prep, I’ve barely managed to check in with my home region on the NaNoWriMo boards, but I guess I’m pushing forward. I’ve hesitated signing up for 2017. Between the broadcasting, and the business stuff, and the house duties — plus working around my husband who has also begun working from home full time; there’s not a ton of time to slot writing 50K words into the mix. But I really don’t want to end the streak: I’ve participated in NaNoWriMo since 2004 – 12 of those years I successfully crossed the 50K line. Taking a year off from it feels wrong, even if I have been saying for most of the year that I’m not sure I can handle the challenge this year.
I guess we’ll find out. 😉
It’s Friday – and Halloween!Â AndÂ NaNoWriMo Eve!Â It’s also 54 degrees outside and without the sun (yay, cloud), it’s pretty cold out there.Â Â So to brighten your day (or, at least mine), here’s Funko Pop Phil out running about this morning, preparing for hiding out during tricks-or-treats, and gearing up for the midnight start of National Novel Writing Month by reading Chris Baty’s revised, updated and expanded No Plot? No Problem!.
Also, you have nine hours left to sign up to write a novel in November! If you’re itching to do something crazy creative for the month, head over to nanowrimo.org – 300,000 of your closest friends will be writing along with you this November!
Yes, I’m one of those 300,000. : )
