NaNoWriMo, oh my!

Only 2 days left until NaNoWriMo!

If you don’t know what that is, I’d be happy to explain. Twelve years ago, some writers declared November National Novel Writing Month. All you have to do is write a 50,000 word work of fiction, from scratch, during the month of November. That’s 30 days to bang out the first draft of a completely new, original work. Not something you’ve worked on in the past, but brand-spanking new.

My friends at the NOVEL Writing Site.com said this: “The idea is to conquer fear, hesitation, overthinking, writer’s block, analysis paralysis, or anything else that’s holding you back and JUST WRITE!” Easier said than done, but a bold and daring challenge none-the-less.

Since I just finished the first rough draft of my newest thriller, NaNo comes at a fabulous time. I’ll pull out an old idea that’s been stewing but hasn’t gotten any screen time, and I’ll see where it takes me. Then, when November is over and I’ve had some distance, and I can pull out the old thriller and edit.

Accept the challenge, writer friends, and participate in NaNo this year.
