“It seems that some creatives will only
know glory at a distance; yet they experience nothing closer
than the very presence of God.”
Once again I'll be trying to win the NaNoWriMo contest come November 1. My last attempt and victory was in 2008, I wrote a non-fiction novel in the style of Capote's In Cold Blood.
NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. Writers all over the world will try to compose 50,000 words in 30 days, beginning November 1. That's about 1666 words per day, but I don't like the 666 thang, so I'll be going for 1700.
Currently I'm working on story arcs and then I'll proceed to the outline. This is permissible by the way, you just can't start the actual writing until November 1.
The word count doesn't stop for Thanksgiving, grandma's gravy and/or black Friday.
1700 words every day.
Have you got what it takes?
I'm part of a blog chain to provide NaNo inspiration.
Check it out HERE now, maybe it will encourage you to jump!
This is the perfect writer's getaway. A tropical resort community with lush palms swaying in the breeze and great neighbors. A place where you'll easily read or write the next great American novel. Plus, we could meet at Starbucks on your break and discuss all things books!
Get out of that soon- to- be snowy state and come on down where it's always warm.
We'll leave the sun out for ya.
