NaNoWriMo

Yes, it’s that time of year again.  The time of year where writer extremists like myself subject ourselves to “thirty days and nights of literary abandon.”  A.K.A.  We forgo food, sleep and sanity to write an entire 50,000 word novel in the month of November (National Novel Writing Month… get it?).  For one month, and one month only, THIS site will be at the forefront of my web browsers tabs over even my Google Reader *gasp* and that’s truly saying something.

It’s only day two so if you are likewise inclined, jump on the bandwagon, sign yourself up, take the plunge and, well, get caught up fast because the first time you think you can skimp out on a day in hopes of writing twice as much the next, you are in serious trouble.

I’d like to say that this won’t affect this already neglected blog but chances are I’ll forget my name and that I even have a blog after another 72 hours contemplating the complexities of an overwrought plot.  But, who knows, maybe I’ll turn to writing blog posts as a means of procrastination.  It can go either way folks.  In any case, I apologize in advance for either the lack of posting or the rambling run-ons of an over-caffeinated girl with writer’s block.

If you’re the praying type, please get those knees to the floor boards now.

It’s NaNoWriMo… you are NOT ready.

and neither am I.

As I mentioned in a past post, November is National Novel Writing Month-a.k.a. NaNoWriMo. The mission, if you choose to accept it, is to write 50,000 words during the month of November and upload to NaNoWriMo.org by midnight, November 30th.

It’s crazy, it’s challenging, it’s down-right exhausting… and it’s amazing. There won’t be too much blogging going on… actually, there will probably be zero blogging so, send up some positive thoughts to tide me over.

You can keep up with my progress below! See you in December!
