NaNoWriMo

Every year I think of participating. Every year I remind myself that it's in November. Every year I wonder why they don't make it a different month. :( I totally applaud all those participating. I think it's a fabulous venture!

My dear friend Christen (who has written - and had published - two books) convinced me to do NaNoWriMo about 3 years ago.

What I wrote was complete crap (well, maybe just PARTIAL crap) BUT it did convince me that I could do it, and the fact that you have only 30 days definitely forces you to be very regimented about your time and GET IT DONE. Plus the whole camraderie is wonderful... I really enjoyed the experience.

Christen is preparing to write her 3rd book and wants me to write one simultaneously, so we can encourage one another. I'm considering it.....

Shoot! I didn't read the rules, but can you get started for next year? I hope you will do it next year.

I wonder if I'd be more likely to do it in, say, February or May. But then that would make it FeMoWriMo or MaMoWriMo. Should we set up a competitor site? :P

HWHL, that's so cool that you did it!! I think you should go for it!

Emily, that place looks divine! Have you been? I love coffee houses and tea rooms.

I hear you, D'Arcy.

April, you have to do all your writing in the month of November, from what I understand. People who do it love it. Thanks for the encouragement.

Jessica, that is so cool!!
