No NaNoWriMo This Year...


So many writers have been blogging and writing about November since, well...last November. For those of you unfamiliar with the phrase, "NaNoWriMo" it stands for the National Novel Writing Month. Technically, a person can write a novel any month...November seems to be the month of choice.

Basically, if you choose to participate in NaNoWriMo, you've got 30 days to write a 50,000 word novel, that's just under 1,666 words a day. And since I don't write on Sundays (except for my daily journal and this blog...), I would need to write 1,923 words a day for 26 days, and if I wished to start this month, I would only have 25 days for this November (since I didn't write today...), which means I would need to write exactly 2K words a day.

I would love to participate with all those other writers. But I don't believe I'm going to do it this year. The play will take a lot of my time this month, and, of course, there's that "working full-time" thing...

Like I stated earlier, technically, a person can write 50,000 words in a 30 day span anytime. I think it would be cool to join the army of creators in an epic battle against exhaustion, frustration, and the ever-present, writer's block. Together we'll win the war. Next year, I hope to be right there in the trenches with you!
