Oh my goodness. At this time next week NaNoWriMo will have started! I'm super excited and a smidge nervous.
NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month and this year will be my 4th year participating. The name of the game is to write 50,000 words during the month of November. That averages out to about 1667 words a day. You don't edit. You don't even really need an outline. It's down and dirty writing to get the juices flowing.
I've been working a little thus far on character development and a slight outline just so that I feel a little more in control but really I don't have a clear idea of what I'll be writing about. I know it'll be young adult fiction and I know who my main characters are but otherwise I'll be developing the story as I go alone. And hopefully I'll be able to keep up!
I'll be keeping an updated word count here and if you're doing NaNo please find me so we can be writing buddies!
