It's that time of year again- that time where we can tell who the writers are by the massive amounts of coffee they drink (my Starbucks bill speaks for itself), how they crazily mumble to themselves about dropping people off cliffs (it's a legit subject! It keeps readers interested...right?) , and how they run like their pants are on fire to their computers/journals and start stomping on the keyboard (no comment): NANOWRIMO! ;)
Crazy word, eh?
It stands for National Novel Writing Month. What you do is you set a goal for yourself of some number of words (I'm in the Youth Writing Program, so we get to control our word count, but if you go with the regular NaNoWriMo, it's automatically 50,000 words), and you just write, write, write during the month of November. I found out about NaNoWrimo just last year, but apparently if you reach your goal of 50,000 words or whatever, you can send it in, and they'll send it back to you as a paperback for free!
Wicked cool ;)
So drop by and check it out! (And don't forget to say hi @ kyendwarrior !)
Happy writing! :)
