Is anyone participating this year? If you don't know what NaNoWriMo is, here's the gist of it: It's a challenge to write a novel in...30 days! That's write (<hehe, sorry, couldn't resist), a 50,000 word novel beginning on November 1st, 2011 and ending at 11:59PM on November 30th, 2011. If you're interested, you can still enter! It's really cool and there are tons of awesome things on their website, including forums, inspirational messages, etc. So, if you're interested, check out the NaNoWriMo website and get writing!
I admit that I "cheated" a little. I had never heard of NaNoWriMo before November 2nd (yes, 11/02/2011), but I had already written about 5,000 words in the book that I'm working on. When I heard about NaNo, I decided it might be the push I needed to finish my book. I started writing again last night and now my word count is over 11,000! I'm stoked!
