For those of you who don’t know, Nanowrimo stands for National Novel Writing Month. This is a competition against yourself to write about 1500 words a day and end up with 50,000 words/a novel. This is my first time actually participating in it, before I always admired from afar. But now I am ready to push myself to my limits and put a deadline and goal insight.

I am toying with some ideas…I have a few that I like but I already have a work in progress that I’m not sure if I want to continue with. I have some thought out scenes that have been on mind recently, and I want to write those but I also don’t want to ditch my other idea. Ugh…the struggle is real

My goals

  • Write Everyday (at least 1,000 words)

  • Create a habit

  • Have a book by the end, or at least half done

I will be typing on Word everyday in the morning to get it done early. Also, the morning is a great time for me to write because the creative juices are flowing. The night is also a good time for me, but if I stay up to late I will be exhausted all throughout school. Are you a night owl or an early bird?

I do have a lot going on this November, so I will have to adjust and adapt to my unpredictable life.

I am so excited to participate in this awesome (and challenging) event! The NaNoWriMo community is so motivational and supportive; I can’t wait to tackle this event and get my book written!

I already feel the adrenaline motivation flowing through me. As most of you know, I love to write. I journal a lot. But, I always felt intimidated and tired by the task of writing a gigantic book. I am going to quit saying, “I’ll write a book when I’m older” because NOW IS THE TIME!
