NaNoWritMo (National Novel Writing Month)

NaNoWritMo (National Novel Writing Month)

typing nanowritmo

This is fun, writing creatively to finish a novel or certain word count for a month. Since a novel is generally 50,000- 100,000 words, you set your daily word count.  This is the month I usually become crazy.  I am a hard-core goal-directed person. I didn’t start a life that way, but this character trait had resonated in my personality over the years. In my job, I write reports all day. Now for my book writing, I need to write 2000 words a day. That can actually add up to 6,000-to 8,000 words a day when I combine my word documents. However, the work word count does not make up the actual NaNoWritMo work. So I put on my crazy hat each morning and hit the keys.

What is NaNoWriMo?  In 1999, the challenge was issued to write 50000 words of a novel during November. Basically, this organization supports writing fluency and education. It does it in many forms, including providing a writing platform similar to Linkedin, but for writers. It does have a space for limited information profiles and programs to help you start writing. At this time, it is a real-world event.

In my “Shut up and Write” groups, Munich, Grodengen, Sacramento, Denver, many have joined in this month’s writing goals…50,000 words or bust.  You can join anytime and just set your daily goal.

Even though I have one book in the editing stage, I started my NaNoWritMo book. A historical western romance featuring a heroine named Dolly. I have 35,000 words and two weeks to go. Will I make the goal? Will I end up in a nuthouse?

Anything is possible is my motto.
