Okay, writing people. I have decided to do NaNoWriMo! My first ever ‘official’ dive into the craziness of 50,000 words in a single month! After all, the world needs my novel, right?
Not gonna lie: I’m scared. Really scared.
Why? Because I’m an overachiever. If I set a goal and don’t meet it, I’m more likely to spiral into a depression over it, than I am to let it roll from my shoulders and remind myself that the world won’t end if I don’t meet my goal. So, everything about this scares me simply because I’d love to not end 2016 with sadness and frustration.
Which is where you come in!! I know I can’t be the only one who feels this way. So, if you are doing NaNo, leave a comment below with your user name and I’ll add you as a Buddy! (My user name is simply my official author name! Laura L. Zimmerman!) Please do the same for me and we can encourage and cheer one another on during this month of insanity!
What do you say? Are you up for NaNo? Or are you taking this year off? Feel free to leave a comment about your past experiences, too. I’d love to hear as much about this crazy world of Word Sprints and Write Ins as possible!
Stay tuned for updates on info about my WIP and how my month is going!! I promise I’ll blog something this month…I already have some Flash Fiction and book reviews ready to post, just for my CF readers! Yay!
P.S. Did you know there’s a Young Writers Program, for those below the age of 18 that love to write just as much as us wacky adults? It’s set up similar to NaNo but gives a bit more freedom for students who already have a school workload. Check it out here and encourage a young writer to sign up!
Happy writing, friends!
