I've done it for five years. I'm doing it again this year. For one solid month, for 30 running days, I will focus my attention and intent on writing a long piece of fiction. A story. A novel. Not blogging. Not editing. Not all the other running-words-together writing I do. I will focus on writing a book and I will do it by joining 200,000 or more other writers participating in NaNoWriMo a.k.a. National Novel Writing Month.
And I will do it first thing every morning, crapping out 1,667 - 2,500 words before I do another thing.
I will not care if it's crap.
I will write.
I will write fiction.
I will create a world.
I will create characters.
They will do stuff.
To each other.
And maybe, some sweet day, to you.
I am already starting to get nervous. My palms are sweaty. My heart is beating faster. Freakout!
How about you? Are you revved up for NaNoWriMo? Does a group effort like this excite you? Propel? Inspire? Leave us your NaNo handle in the comments so we can be writing buddies! You can find me here.
Good luck and good writing!
