This will be my 2nd year doing Nanowrimo, which is pretty exciting since I took part last year and won so I'm really motivated to do the same this year.
National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing on November 1. The goal is to write a 50,000 word, (approximately 175 page) novel by 11:59:59, November 30.
Valuing enthusiasm and perseverance over painstaking craft, NaNoWriMo is a novel-writing program for everyone who has thought fleetingly about writing a novel but has been scared away by the time and effort involved.
So last year, I did a futuristic, romance sort of sci-fi novel; I did start to edit it but put in back in the trunk again seeing that it wasn't a project I had planned to write in the first place so I put it back in the back burner so that I can start writing the first draft of the novel that was swimming in my head. Currently I am struggling to get as much on paper as I can before November starts seeing that I'm gonna need to start a new novel for Nanowrimo so its probably going to be on hold for another month but I am aiming to finish it by the end of the year Hopefully
This year for Nanowrimo, I am hoping to write something a bit closer to home in terms of setting and characters; I finished my initial outline and am starting to grasp the characters I want in it, which I should get done before Nanowrimo starts
Wish me luck! Have a feeling that this year is gonna be a stressful one
It's finally that time of year again *grins* November is less than 2 weeks away which means that Nanowrimo is back again.
