“Please come back later… author writing”

While I had hoped to get back on the blogging train, I failed to look at the calendar.

“Holy heck it’s November again, I need to get organized for NaNoWriMo.”

What’s NaNoWriMo you ask?

Taken from their website: Now, each year on November 1, hundreds of thousands of people around the world begin to write, determined to end the month with 50,000 words of a brand-new novel.

This will be my 3rd year doing NaNoWriMo, my first two produced draft novels that I haven’t looked at since (facepalm), but this year is different.

This year I’m writing a novella (a shorten version of a novel) and two connected short stories for a shared universe project that I’m doing with fellow regional authors.

And that’s a big part of the appeal with NaNoWriMo, while you may be writing by yourself, knowing there are thousands of others out there doing the same thing and supporting each other can be extremely motivating.

So if you’ve ever thought of writing a book, consider giving NaNoWriMo a try, you might surprise yourself.
