NaNoWriMo or NaNotForMeMo
I particularly liked Anne Allen's post about it. She also gives a little history and background about the event, if you're interested. National Novel Writing Month (hence, NaNoWriMo) is a great motivator to write with abandon. The goal is to finish a 50,000-word novel by the end of the November while not worrying if it's perfect. I like that, especially when you're dealing with first drafts. Anyone who finishes is a winner. And that's cool too.
A few friends and I had fun yesterday on Twitter. We came up with all sorts of variations for NaNoWriMo. I suggested NaImInHawaiiMo while a few others pressed for NaPassTheDaqMo. It was hard to choose. Hey, by the way, if I'm not following you on Twitter, please let me know! Twitter Me.
Will you be participating this year in NaNoWriMo? Good idea/bad idea?
