This November I am going to enter and win NaNoWriMo — National Novel Writing Month.
As the days get colder and my psyche more depressed, I want to hunker down with my dreams, like wrapping my hands around a warm cup of coffee.
Some runners complete the NYC marathon, some women have babies, some consumers shop early for Christmas presents. I’m not those kinds of crazy. I am the kind of wacky that gets up at 6 the morning and stays up until 11 at night (I told you, CRAZY!) hunched over my keyboard, spewing out meandering plot points about imaginary friends.
Why do it? I have a lot on my plate (4 blogs, 3 kids, 2 jobs, and a partridge in a pear tree!)
- It is there, like Mount Everest.
- My imagination will surprises me.
- It’s a communal writing experience. Tens of thousands of writers will appear at the start line, encouraging one another as they write.
- It feels so good when it’s done.
