November is National Novel Writing Month

This will be my fourth year participating in Nanowrimo. That means I will be trying to write a book, 50,000 words worth, during the month of November. It’s not as crazy as it seems. It amounts to just under 1700 words per day, which I can do in less than an hour (because I’m not editing, see, that’s one of the points!).

So, even though my body is a mess and I’m battling with Quicken files, I will do it. And this year I’m even going to try actual fiction (usually I add 50K words to my memoir materials).

It’s a great way to make new friends (there is a wonderful set of message boards), get out (you can attend “write-ins” at local coffee shops all over the world), and get a really rough first draft spit out of your imagination.

Join me if you like – look me up under Serena Mira Asta. It’s a crazy hoot, it’s free (although donations keep the organization doing good deeds like funding libraries in Cambodia, running a Young Writers Program, etc.)
