The start of November means a lot of things for me: my Stanford application is officially in, fall has finally arrived in California, we're one month closer to Christmas, and most importantly, National Novel Writing Month is here!
Is anyone else as excited as I am?
For those of you who are wondering what National Novel Writing Month is, it is a one-month writing challenge. The concept is simple: 30 days, 50k words. Meeting the goal, however, is not quite as simple.
This will be my fourth year participating in NaNoWriMo. Though I've never won, I've always come within 5,000-2,000 words of the 50k word goal. (Well, except for 2009, when I was forced to quit early on in the month because of school. But whatever.) Maybe this year will be the year, or maybe it won't be. All I know is I cannot wait to get started tonight.
Good luck to all my fellow NaNoWriMo participants!
