PSA about NaNoWriMo

Just so y’all know, during November, I’ll be participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). It’s the first year I’ve entered this contest. While I’m aware the end product will be a very rough draft of a novel, I want to do the best I can.

Thus, next month, I’ll be posting mostly (if not all) photos on my blog while I write a novel that’s at least 50,000 words. I believe I can do it, given that my longest Harry Potter fic was over 65,000 words. (As embarrassing as that is to admit.) This is the first time I’ll be writing an original piece comparable to that story (in length — I’d hope it’s much better in quality).

Who knows, I may even post excerpts on my blog when I’m done (and have edited). Good luck to everyone else who’s participating in NaNoWriMo!

  1. Do you know I was actually thinking of joining! But chickened out (will be too difficult to do with a demanding 3-year-old)… So I’m so happy and excited for you. You can absolutely do this!


    • Thank you for the support, Dean! Totally understandable — T probably wouldn’t leave you alone long enough so you could write everyday! I’ve got a general outline, so it will just be a matter of cranking the story out. I’m terrible about editing as I go along, so I’ll have to rein that tendency in & just keep chugging.
