Nope – my title isn’t code or an encryption gone awry – it stands for National Novel Writing Month.
According to the NaNoWriMo website it is a “is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30.”
Yep – you read that right – an entire first draft of a novel in one month. I’ve never done this before and I have no idea how it will go. I’m working on my current novel, “Southern Comfort” – the description of my book is under the “Meet My Imaginary Friends” page to the right.
I’ll be posting my progress here and I encourage you to cheer me on and give me a swift kick-in-the-pants when I deserve it. The website is: http://www.nanowrimo.org/ and my username is robincovington.
Stay tuned – it should be an interesting ride.
