So I figured some of you might be wondering exactly what Nanowrimo is and why it is I even care.
I got turned onto this site by a good friend of mine. I started writing several years ago. I have several finished novels: Calagonia (a scifi novel: Finished), Vendel Rising (a scifi novel: Finished), Untitled Fantasy Novel (Languishing unfinished), The Icarus Project (romantic/erotic novel: Finished), Construct Wars (a scifi novel:Languishing in outerspace unfinished). I have several other adult themed novels (five of them finished, one unfinished) that are for mature audiences. I have all these stories spilling out of my head waiting to get written on the page.
But my writing muse comes and goes at her leisure. I have periods where my writing flows like a geyser. My poor fingers can’t keep up with the pace and I get tendonitis in the backs of my hands because I type so fast…..And….Then…she vanishes. My muse disappears and *POOF* my writing dries up, or I am distracted by other things, such as life. I can go for months without writing anything at all.
This has happened with each of my unfinished novels, life got in the way, or my muse left me hanging, and I never finished the story. Those characters are furious with me, because their lives are only half written, their personal universes unformed, and their potential unfulfilled.
And then….every NOVEMBER, this wonderful event happens!
What is Nano?…Well this is copied from their website (credit where it’s due and all)…maybe some of you will decide to join?
IT is what gets me writing again…which for 2012 is exactly what I’m doing. I’m going back to an orphan story this time and I’m finishing it. That’s it! No excuses! So join me….create a world of your own. Take the NaNo challenge and build a world out of the creative juices of your mind. You never know where you’ll end up!
Thirty days and nights of literary abandon!
One month. 50,000 words. An adventure you’ll never forget. Are you writing a novel this November?
