I'm still here. Remember those books I listed in my previous post? Yep, I am busy reading and reading some more. 5 books so far...lots more to finish before November 1st. Expect a lot of book reviews coming your way the month of November. (Which is perfect since I'm doing NaNoWriMo this year, and I doubt I'll have time to blog much.)
What's that? You don't know what NaNoWriMo is? I didn't either until I saw the frenzy on Twitter over a month ago about getting ready for this whatchamacallit annual event. So of course, crazy, curious
cat person that I am, I had to go and check it out. And sign myself up without even thinking it thoroughly. I already told hubs last week I'm doing this writing thing next month, and even though his eyes were mostly glazed over, sweet as he is, the first thing he asked me when I was done explaining was: What can I do for you?
See? See why I married the guy? *envy me* haha!
So. NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. It's not a contest, per se. More like a challenge you do with a bunch of other
crazies writers. The goal is simple: Write 50,000 words in a month. If we must simplify this, that would be approximately 1700 words everyday. Sounds doable? Perhaps. I'm a slow writer but highly motivated when given a deadline. So we'll see how it goes.
Alright, I'm going back to my reading. Must build up my ammunition (words) before the real writing begins.
