NaNoWriMo 2005

The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul.
-- Proverbs






I must be insane, because despite the fact that I can barely write one poem a week at this point, I've signed up once again for NaNoWriMo.

NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month, which takes place in November. The goal is to write a novel in a single month, or perhaps more accurately, to write a draft of a novel in a single month.

I'm going to underline that word, draft, and stick it to the edge of my monitor, along with words like inspiration, perserverance, uninhibited, possible, and achieve. And I'm going to write. A lot.

Me, too! And if you think of any more good words to stick to the monitor, please post them!

I'm glad to know you're joining in, Patry! The collective intent of all the NaNo participants is magical, and I'm going to try and channel it as much as possible this year. I'm sure I'll have more words to add to my monitor, and maybe a few to throw in the wastebin.

Good for you!

Debra Broughton said...

That's decided. I was wavering, but as I'll be in such good company - I'm in too!

Good luck Sharon, and Patry.

Sharon Hurlbut said...

Yay, Debra! The more the merrier. Glad you're joining.

Good luck, Sharon! Maybe I should join just to finish my novel!! Or is that cheating?

Aw, who cares if it's 'cheating'!? Come on, join the fun.
