NaNoWriMo…as crazy as it sounds I signed up and took the Plunge

Well, it is now the second week of November and if your hands are tired and your eyes are red you know where I’m going with this. No, I didn’t turn into a vampire but I might look like one in the middle of the night/early morning because of my bright computer screen.

You: What is NaNo-whats-it-called?

Me: NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. Every November writers all over the world write a novel in the month of November.

You: How many words do you have to write?

Me: 50,000

You: *Jaw drops to the ground* You are crazy!

Me: No just ready to write!

You can join NaNoWriMo too! It’s not that late so visit the official website and sign up (it is free!) and get writing. The website is:

If you are already apart of NaNo let us know and post your word count. Keep use updated!

    The library still wants to do a writing program next year. When we see how that goes, we hope to be able to do one for NaNoWriMo too. How’s your count going Caroline? Anyone else participating?

    Hi! My word count is at 26,340. My 25,001 word was Circumstances that was written at 12:23 am last night/ early this morning.
    When I reached 26,000 words it was hte word a (how lame was that?).

    I have 23,660 words left and this is the last week. I am having fun but my inner editor is trying to kill me.

    Well it’s National Novel Writing Month, not National Novel Editing Month. Just keep writing! Then when you’re finished go back and look at editing. Otherwise you might not get very far- you’ll just keep changing things.

    I think 50,000 words is like 120 something pages. At least it is for the font I use.

    12 font, bold, single spaced.

    You won! What did you win? Whats the story about?
