And I forgot to mention I learned about this in The Happiness Project also. NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month, a notion that has taken the world by storm made up by Chris Baty who has created a hilarious, informative website and a book called No Plot No Problem which Gretchen Rubin used as a guide to write a novel in 30 days. November is the official NaNoWriMo so if you like, you can go join the NaNoWriMo community on the website (it’s free) and participate in this undertaking next month. Perhaps by the end of the month, you too can have a 50,000 word novel completed and be a NaNoWriMo winner! (winners are anyone and everyone who finishes.) How cool to have written a novel, whether anyone ever sees it or not. Gretchen says hers is in a drawer for now. I’ve joined and am prepping for mine – Chris is right – people like me (and apparently many others) won’t write our things unless we have a deadline. He also said the busier you are, the better…okay, we’ll see. Even if you aren’t being haunted by a story that is dying to be written and won’t leave you alone until you put it to paper, the website is great fun and funny with lots of wonderful wrimo tips of course, and they are doing lots of fantastic things in education with their young writers program. Countdown to start date … 4 weeks from tomorrow exactly. Let me know if you’re going to be a fellow Wrimo. Come on, will be fun. (hopefully…probably.)
