This time next week (at midnight, to be precise) NaNoWriMo officially begins. In case you aren’t familiar with it, this stands for National Novel Writing Month. Hundreds of thousands of people have already signed up for the challenge this year! It’s an amazing way to band together as a group of writers and accomplish something practically impossible – writing an entire book in one month.
Not just any month, either. November is full of holidays, family coming in from out of town, and in my family’s case, Griffin’s one year birthday. That’s alot to cram into one month, let alone adding school work and the possibility of writing an entire book from scratch.
But I’ve told my professor about it, so we are going to combine this with some of the assignments she gives me. I will be working towards the NaNoWriMo goal, while also getting graded for it – sounds like a decent plan to me!
I have some ideas floating around in my head, taking up space in the far back corners – the spaces not crammed with household chores and progressing my child in all the right ways. I’ve created a Pinboard on Pinterest dedicated to some of the images that come to mind when I think of this writing project. Take a look if you’d like; it’s what my daydreams are made of.
