NaNoWriMo. That stands for National Novel Writing Month, and writers are challenged to write an entire novel during the month of November. The goal is to write a 50,000 word, 175 page novel by 11:59pm on November 30th. Sounds challenging, yet.... inspiring!
They have a great program for young authors, as well as a plethora of resources to inspire willing writers. In fact, you may have even read some books that began as NaNoWriMo projects! (Water for Elephants anyone?)
Anyway, after perusing the web last night, I learned that there is something a little different for those in the blog-o-sphere. It's called NaBloPoMo. National Blog Posting Month. If I am understanding correctly, there are similar challenges that go on year-round, but November is the birth-month of these great writing projects. It sounds like something worth giving a go, so.... I signed in the empty box and clicked "submit" and voila! I'm going to give this challenge a go!
What does that mean? One post a day. For an entire month. Might be a bit tricky, as November is one of those crazy months at work, but then again, so was June. I survived the June Blogger Challenge and actually really enjoyed it! I'm hoping NaBloPoMo is equally as worderific (yes, I think I did just invent a new word) as June was. As there are no "set" blog prompts (though there are prompts available!) I am eager to see what transpires!
