Nanowrimo Participation

For all of those that don't know, this year I will be participating in Nanowrimo. Nanowrimo is short for National Novel Writing Month and is an annual event for both professional and amateur writers. The challenge is to write 50,000 words in the month of November. It's free to participate and there are no prizes - it's just a challenge so the motivation must come from within. This is the first time I've done this and I'll admit to not really knowing what I'm doing. I'm also crazy for entering in the first place as I still have to work full time at the hospital, take care of all domestic duties at home, run my website and the book tour site. What was I thinking?! Well, writing is important to me and I want to write a book. I always have so many ideas for books and I just want to get on and write it! I'm hoping that Nanowrimo will help turn off my inner editor and encourage me to just get the words on the page. So please wish me luck!

The reason I'm telling you about this is that I might be a little quieter than usual on Twitter and the blog. THIS IS WHY. I'm still going to participate in Waiting on Wednesday and I have a back log of reviews that ideally I would like to take care of this week so I can stagger the publication on the blog. That way, it might lOOK like I'm still around ;)

I hope I'm still sane in December and can announce some good news. I'm starting my prayers tonight ;)

  3. Good luck Lynsey, I'll be cheering you on from the sidelines :o) Hope the first couple of days have gone well!

  4. Good luck to you! I'm always a little in awe of people participating in NaNo!
