Hi everyone, sorry I haven’t posted in a while. Sadly October is coming to a close *cry* but as some really wise person once said (maybe it was Elvis? Yoda?) “When closes door, open another does”.

November is coming up and you know what that means..NaNoWriMo! NaNoWriMo stands for ‘National Novel Writing Month’, it’s such a big thing that it even has its own organization and website at www.nanowrimo.org

The goal of the month is to write a full novel in thirty days. I’m not talking about a one of those dinky 10 k short stories. I’m talking about 50,000 words in 30 days. You might be thinking…WTF!

But don’t worry, It’s about quantity not quality (though you should spell check along the way. It’s just more classy). This is a test for writers of all kinds all over the world whether your genre is YA, erotica, romance, horror, suspense, etc. to see how disciplined you can be, how far can you go, and see if you can finish.

Why would someone actually put themselves through that amount of stress and self-torture in one month? Simple: It’s fun!

The NaNoWriMo organization is so supportive of its writers with forums from inspirational writing music to places having “Write Ins” in your local area where you can meet up with other participants going through the exact same thing your going through.

I’m going to update the blog on my progress all through the month so get ready! Two more days and the madness will begin! And everyone is invited to write or read about writing. It doesn’t cost any money and it’s a great way to network with other writers 🙂

Here’s a music video by the band ALL CAPS that tells the true spirit of NaNoWritMo. (Great song! Great band!) the Albums at iTunes or Amazom.com if you like it!

Blessed Be 🙂
