The buzz on blogs and networking sites is Nanowrimo (national novel writing month) which runs in November. Some people call it a contest, I call it a program. The goal is to write at least a 50,000 word novel during that month. It's crazy. It's fun. And it pushes through writer's block. The site is www.nanowrimo.org
So with all of the works-in-progress I have already, what should I write? Well, last year I wrote New Year's Resolution. My problem is that I'm stuck in a rut of writing short novels. I can't seem to get out of the 60,000 word category. For nano this year I'm going to add the 50, 000 words to New Year's Resolution! Yep, I am. My critique partner asked me if I am crazy. I must be just a teeny bit, huh?
And I'm going to blog about my journey adding so many words to an already written manuscript! You can find my blog over at goodreads.com under Wendy Ely. Watch me take this giant step to over come this writing hurdle!
Are you doing nano this year? What are you working on?
Happy writing and reading,
