I decided to participate in this year”s National November Writing Month aka NaNoWriMo challenge. One month to write a 50 thousand word book beginning on November 1st. Ok I can do this became my mantra for the entire month. As any writer can tell you writing can be a rewarding but often frustrating experience as you try to tell an entertaining ,coherent story. Some days the words would flow like water out of a faucet. Other days, it would be like being stranded in the Sahara Desert searching for a puddle of water to drink. On these days I read books, spent the holidays with family and friends, and survived devastating Hurricane Sandy. I am proud to say that I completed my book on November 29th. The word count was 50,950. After I submitted my story to NaNoWriMo I decided to take a break from it. No editing, revising, or reworking it for at least a few months. Perhaps one day soon I will revisit the story maybe even try to get it publish. Until then I will enjoy this achievement with a well deserved pat on the back and a job well done to myself.
We at the MVBClUB would love to read about your experiences with NaNoWriMo. Please come and share with us.
Remember Reading and Writing is Sexy.
