NaNoWriMo is just around the corner!


This year I’m taking the plunge and participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). Truth be told, I’ve never technically tried writing an entire novel before, let alone writing one in 30 days. So I feel a lot like this astronaut cat…floating in the abyss with a vague look of concern.

But I’m also really excited! I’ve been prepping my characters, plot and setting, and my outline is nearly complete. (I have a couple loose ends to tie up before November 1, but I’m close!) And for some crazy reason, I think I can do this.

Anyway, you likely won’t hear from me this November since I’ll be doing my darnedest to crank out 50,000 words. But hopefully a victory post will mark the end of this journey.

Good luck to all the other NaNoWriMo-ers out there!
