NaNoWriMo, wtf?

For those who don't know about this great thing, it is National Novel Writing Month, starting November 1st, in which aspiring writers from all over the place get together to write a novel in a month. National Novel Writing Month Ah Ha! I have learned to hyperlink!

The goal of NaNoWriMo is to challenge writers to produce a work (it doesn't have to be complete, let alone GOOD) of 50,000 words. It is just for fun, but it has grown so much in the last few years, it is a regular phenomenon.

So I am signing up, yet another way I am trying to hold myself accountable and PRODUCE, and I challenge you to do the same!

Starting November 1st, I will keep a word count of the writing I produce during the month of November, which will be more of my "Empress" story still, but I am not going to count what I have until that point. I don't even know if that sentence made sense, but anywho...

I am tired for the day, so I am out!

Count me in for NaNoWriMo. Your blog is exactly the sort of "fellow struggling writer" source I've been looking for. Hope you'll check out my new blog at Perhaps we can share solutions to the problems that face all of us.

Welcome and thanks for your comment! Medieval history, huh? I have a story idea set during the Hundred Years' War, and then another at the tail end of the Civil War, so we already have some things in common! Hope you enjoy NaNo, this is the first year for me and I'm very excited!
