NaNoWriMo – Day 4 Update

So here we are on day 4 of NaNo and I’ve had a complete change of plan. I just wasn’t feeling the story the story I started with. Instead I’ve decided to go with a series of short stories, Mistress of Potions being the first.

Of course this means I’m now four days behind but that’s okay. There will plenty of time to panic at the end of the month.

NaNoWriMo is Just Around the Corner

It’s that time of year again folks; NaNoWriMo is just a few weeks away.

For those who have never heard of it, NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is a yearly event that challenged writers to do a minimum of 50,000 words during the month of November.  The prize?  Simply knowing that you have achieved something awesome.

I wasn’t able to participate last year but I’m ready and eager to get going this year.  Thanks to my recent vacation I have managed to get my basic concept down to two outlines.  I really might have to toss a coin to decide which one.

I owe a lot to NaNo.  It is thanks to this contest and more importantly to my dear friend Cherie for persuading me to do it, that I got back to writing.

I know we all have our projects, but sometimes it can be good to put those down and just have a bit of fun with our writing (yeah I know, “we must suffer for our art” 😉 ).  And even if you don’t enter this year, you might be able to inspire someone else to do it.  Who knows, it could be a life changing event for them.  It certainly was for me.
