Getting ready for NaNoWriMo

Have you heard of NaNoWriMo? The goal of National Novel Writing Month is to write a novel (or 50,000 words of a novel) during the month of November. That’s about 1800 words each day. When I retired at the end of last November, one of the things I looked forward to doing was to spend time writing. I haven’t. Written, that is (unless you count blog posts, which I really don’t.)

Now, I’ve been visiting a friend in Ottawa for the last two weeks, so haven’t been able to do much in the way of preparation. In fact, I’m dashing off this little post while waiting to board my flight home! Anyway, according to the NaNoWriMo calendar, today is the day to publicly state your intention.

I am going to give this my best shot. I’m going to put my head down and see what happens. Good or ugly. Maybe no one will read it but me, and that’s okay.

If you’re participating in NaNoWriMo too, you can find me on their site under the name nitadances. Hope to see ya there!

    Huh! Wish I’d known this was coming, have been trying to challenge myself to do some writing, but……. And now we’re away again for about half of this month. Oh, well. Will be watching to see how you do and cheering you on!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
