I’ve often asked the question “What is the difference between a blogger and a writer?” Any ideas please, because I’m about to find out!I’m not sure why I decided to sign up and commit myself to the NaNoWriMo(National Novel Writing Month) challenge other than my family have been nagging me to write a novel for the last couple of years. Unfortunately, procrastination is my middle name so the challenge, on the face of it, seemed an excellent opportunity!
I must be crazy because to complete the challenge I need to write a novel of a minimum of 50,000-words in a month. The challenge starts on the 1st of November and finishes at midnight on the 30th.
Reading the about page I’m assured “This is not as scary as it sounds” Yeah, I’m not convinced. It’s probably right up there with being invaded by Zombies!
I’ve also enrolled on a creative writing weekend prior to the challenge which should be fun! errr “Yes it will be!”
I’m getting cold feet and quaking in my boots on both counts already! Still my motto is “You never know until you try, and better to have tried and failed, than not tried at all!” (If you follow my drift) In 2011 there were 256,618 participants and only 36,843 winners (completed the challenge)
Who else has signed up to NaNoWriMo?
