No, not the holiday season – though it is getting to that point as well.
No, I mean it’s National Novel Writing Month – NaNoWriMo!
NaNoWriMo is an event where you pledge to write 50,000 words in 30 days. There’s a website, local live chapters, and lots of inspiration and help.
If you manage to reach your goal, not only do you have what’s technically a novel (even though mine run more to 90-100K), but you get some nice virtual prizes as well.
So if you don’t see me as often this month, it’s because I’m trying desperately to reach my 1667 daily word goal.
