It’s November 1, guys, and I’m on Cloud 286 right now! I could pass out! I might just decide to run a marathon! I may very well use exclamation points at the end of every sentence in this post!
Why, you ask?
Because . . .
Today commences my very first National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) experience! It means that I’m super motivated to kick some writing buttocks.
Are you participating? If not, why not? Get on the writing band wagon for heaven sakes and join forces with me, Writing Jewels (aka: Super Jules). If you don’t I will fire sparkly jewels out of my blue eyes that will definitely pinch your bum until you sign up for the challenge.
Basically, NaNoWriMo’s objective is to help you finish a book within the month of November; more specifically to write 50,000 words.
Eep! I’m about to dance around the room with the delight of knowing I’m going to do this. I AM GOING TO DO THIS WITH A HUGE SMILE PLASTERED ON MY FACE!
So, I started writing my WIP in September. My goal was to finish it in 5 months—as in be querying it by the end of the duration of that time. Well, guys with the help of NaNo and some great kick rocking writing buddies, I’m gonna do it! Quite possibly sooner than I expected as well!
Now all you need to do is follow this link to sign up to become a NaNoWriMo-ista. Become my buddy on there (just search JuliaWritingJewelsKing and you’ll find me). Let’s write up some dust!
Have you ever participated in a Nano? What has been your experience? Are you going to join forces with me in this adventure? We definitely will make up a secret handshake including an Elaine-esque type dance from Seinfeld and eat ice cream to our tummy’s content. Sigh!
Bring on the words! Bring on the motivation! Bring on tons more exclamation points!
