I’ve got the NaNoWriMo bug and no I don’t need any cream for that.
I know some of y’all are giving me the side-eye right about now.
And others are googling the term to see if it’s contagious.
But rest assured it is not.
NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month.
It is a writing challenge which takes place in November.
With the goal of completing a 50,000 word novel by month’s end.
I decided to participate because one of my goals as a writer is to in fact write (and hopefully publish) books.
To be honest, I was quite nervous when I signed up for the challenge.
I mean 50,000 words in 30 days is no small task.
Plus I had no idea what I wanted to write.
No characters. No theme. No plot. No universal truth that I wanted to speak on.
Add to that my full-time job, being a single mother and of course keeping this lovely blog chugging along.
And well it seemed darn near impossible.
But I signed up anyways.
And I am happy to report that not only do I have the makings of what I think is going to be a great novel.
But a piece of work that I believe will bring healing and inspiration to a lot of hurting girls and women.
So if you notice that the posts around these parts seem sparse for the next 30 days.
Please be patient with me and know I am diligently plugging along on something dear to my heart.
NaNoWriMo or bust!
