I’m writing a novel!

This year I decided to participate in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) which means that I will be trying to write 50,000 words during the month of November. I really have no idea how successful I will be but there’s only way to find out. These days everybody fancies themselves a writer and the desire to write a novel feels almost cliche and that is the silly reason I have put off doing this. I have always loved reading and writing and have even had poetry published. A couple of years ago I wrote fanfiction which was fun but I never took it very seriously. These days, I write my blog but every now and then I will write out some ideas for stories I want to write. Participating in NaNoWriMo is a way to challenge myself to start this daunting task and stick to it until it’s done.

So, I created a profile over on nanowrimo.org and slapped together a faux book cover for my not-yet-written novel. I’ve started doing some research, thinking about characters and locations, and trying to set myself a schedule that will ensure I meet my writing goal.  This blog post is a way to hold myself accountable. I’ve made my intention public and that will hopefully motivate me.

Wish me luck!
