Nanowrimo is starting

For those of you who don't know, Nanowrimo is a novel writing challenge that takes place every November for people like me that don't have enough happening in their lives already! The idea behind this site is to just write, they give you 30 days to write 50,000 words. As they say its all about the quantity not the quality, its about just getting that book you swore you would write one of these days down onto paper. This will be my first year and I am both nervous and anxious about the amount of time that will be required to keep up with the 1600 words a day quota. The fact that I am a caregiver and I work out of my home will also add to this challenge. I have decided to write about my personal experience and journey with Jennifer's crash. Although they want us to write fiction I am going to write more of a memoir. I will be posting excerpts if you are interested in reading it and seeing how things are progressing. I would appreciate any support you might be able to offer since most of my family and friends think I am crazy!! www.nanowrimo.org

It sounds like you have the desire needed to commit to this challenge and you have a storyboard. I say, "go for it." It's ONLY one month and it just might be a project that is life changing!

Desiree what an interesting blog and your Christmas Cards are ingeneous. I'm glad I noticed your bog with your comment in Flora and Fauna project.

Do it! They think you're crazy? Tell them that your revenge will be to write about them for everyone else to read! Ha!
Yes, please do post what you've written; I'd love to read it. I can't imagine a project more personal and meaningful...

My son does this every year, and it's so much fun to read what comes out of it!
