It’s that time of year again, and I don’t mean Halloween.
It’s time for writers to put pen to paper or fingertips to keyboard!
It’s NaNoWriMo time!
This will be my third year as a NaNoWriMo participant. The first year, if you remember, I wrote The Stolen Goldin Violin. The second year, I upped my word count on Wilde Wagers. This year, I plan to spend the month of November completely revising Syncopation and getting it ready to submit to Cornerstone Press in January.
So, I’m a NaNoWriMo cheater. The idea of NaNoWriMo is to turn off one’s internal editor and write an entire novel, from start to finish, during the month of November. I did that the first year, but these past two years that system hasn’t really fit into where I’m at as a writer, so I’ve adapted the program to suit my own needs. I love the supportive emails I get from NaNoWriMo, and being part of a writing community is amazingly wonderful.
I’ll keep you updated on my progress, and I encourage anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel to sign up. It’s great fun! Just go to NaNoWriMo.org and sign up today. You are running out of time for 2011!!
