This is the first year that I will be participating in NanoWrimo–and I’m excited. I didn’t think I would be, but it will help keep my butt in the chair and ensure that I write daily and consistently.

For those of you who don’t know, NanoWrimo stands for National Novel Writing Month, wherein participants are challenged to write a 50,000 word novel within the month of November (November 1-30). I think that I may do well. πŸ˜‰ And if I don’t, well at least I’m going to try. πŸ™‚ For those of you participating, my Nano name is Horror Diva if you’d like to friend me. πŸ˜€

Who else is participating? Who’s just going to watch?


  1. I'll try but I'm cheating and working with a manuscript I already started- an additional 50,000 words would be a godsend- i need to finish this mess!

  2. I'll be watching and cheering you on. I had given it some thought after you told me about it, but then remembered that November isn't a good month for me. Little Bit is due around the 23rd, so that'll definitely cut into my writin time.

  3. I am not so sure I can pull that off to be frank. Not this year. My second novel was a NaNo entry and that didn't turn out as planned really, even though I pulled it off in 15 days, because the first 15 I was lazy as hell.

  4. I can't make it to any NaNo events due to my geographic location and my work schedule. Want to do a NaNo ring of sorts via blogger? A check in, and perhaps even an honor-system forfet of some kind if you fail the goal?

  5. Robin,Aww. Thanks. πŸ˜€ I appreciate it. ;-)Dee,Oh, you're not supposed to cheat or at least admit to it…lol. :-DMarcia,Oh you don't need to do it anyway. You have deadlines. ;-)Myne,Really? Start from scratch. It's fun. :-DHarry,For shame! Lazy for the first half? ;-)Charles,Thanks. πŸ˜€ I wish I had deadlines right about now as well. ;-)Written,That sucks that you don't have a local Nano group. Aside from that, good ideas all around. πŸ˜€

  6. Lana,Thanks. :-DLaughing Wolf,Thanks and I'm rooting for you as well. ;-)Raine,Thanks. πŸ˜€ I know you're busy. ;-)Christina,We'll both reach our goals. πŸ˜€
