NaNoWriMo 2015

NaNo-2015-Participant-BannerNaNoWriMo—National Novel Writing Month—starts in just a few weeks. During the month of November, novelists attempt to write 50,000 words in thirty days. It’s a marathon-style event that encourages people to write. I haven’t done it in years.

Usually, I’m already waist-deep in another writing project. This year, though, things are very different.

Depression got the best of me. I haven’t written anything in weeks. It’s a bitter cycle, because not writing makes me more depressed.

So I think it’s time to rectify this.

I’ve tried everything else. When I face the blank page, I still feel unmotivated and overwhelmed.

So a friend and I made a pact. We decided to participate in NaNoWriMo to get ourselves back on track.

Starting November 1st, I’m going to write every day—even if I only manage to lay down a couple of sentences.

Are you doing NaNoWriMo? Add me as a buddy!

  1. Aw, I LOVE NaNoWriMo, but it is sadly not going to work out with my production schedule (again!) this year. Still, it’s always such an exciting time, to have everyone geeking out about their novels all at once. 🙂 Good luck!!
