November is National Novel Writers Month or NaNoWriMo. For the next month, amateur writers of all ages pledge to write every day to produce a finished 50,000 word novel before December 1.
I’ve had friends do this previously and again this year. I was talking about it with a buddy and she asked me if thought about doing it this year. I don’t know. It seems like a lot of work.
I’d rather do something on a smaller scale, like a blog. Then I thought about making a commitment to blogging every day in November. It could be, I don’t know, my own National Blog Posting Month. NaBloPoMo. It’s fun just saying it.
Then I thought I’d google and see if anyone else had come up with this brilliant idea before I did. Yup. NaBloPoMo. Oh well. There are no new ideas.
I’m still going to give it a try. It’s just the 4th and I’m doing okay so far. The dog looks a little unhappy. I don’t think this is my fault. She gets to go out once a day whether she needs it or not.
Do you write? Blog? Does having an imposed goal or deadline help and inspire you? Tell me your story.
Don’t forget, my giveaway ends tomorrow. Still time to sign up here. My calculations reveal you have a one to five percent chance of winning. Good luck!
