It’s the First Day Of NaNoWriMo

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…for writers anyway. It is the month where we buckle down and put that long awaited project (or our next project) that we’ve been procrastinating to start on the front burner in an effort to finish a first draft (or 50,000 words) by the end of November. While this may just be the most unprepared I have been starting a project (I’m an extremely detailed plotter and heavy outliner) I am excited to start this novel because this will be my first time writing in this genre (middle grade) and I can’t wait to see what I can do and where this story will take me.

If you are a fellow writer and plan on participating in NaNoWriMo I just want to wish you good luck in your projects and that you get all the words that you can. If you are not a fellow writer but have writer friends make sure that you are cheering them on from the sidelines and if they need you in any way (whether it is to talk out an idea or just to give them the space to write) make sure that you are there for them in the way that works for them because this is a big deal for them (for all of us writers).

I wish you all a wonderful and productive week and Happy NaNo everyone!

Until next time… #BeMotivated #BeFocused #BeDiligent
