NaNoWriMo 2011

It’s the 31st of October. For most people, it is Halloween. For those who celebrate it, it is either Samhain or Beltane, depending on which hemisphere you’re in.

For me, 31st October means it is time to prepare for the great writing adventure that is NaNoWriMo. For those who don’t know, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. Although National isn’t that accurate of a description anymore, considering it is now an international event. To sum NaNoWriMo up quickly, the basic premise is to write a novel of 50,000 words in the month of November, 30 days. This works out to be 1667 words a day. If you hit the 50,000 word count by the time the clock ticks over to midnight on the 1st of December.

This year, it will be my 6th NaNoWriMo. I have only won once – last year. Which was a miracle in itself considering I was busy with school work in November. This November I will be free so let’s hope I can hit that 50,000 word count again.
