National Novel Writing Month is upon us. As in years before, thousands of would-be authors will sit at their keyboards and attempt to bang out 50,000 words or more. Yours truly will be attempting it as well.
This will be my third attempt. In years past, though I’ve had writing buddies on the nanowrimo site, I’ve not attended in live events, nor had in person writing buddies. St. Louis though has a large community of nanowrimo authors so I decided to get some face time this year; the hope being that I’ll be more encouraged, inspired and challenged to complete fifty thousand words.
Saturday we had a kick-off party hosted by etoiline. She brought some goodies, captured our names, and set us to mingling. This Saturday is the Halloween pre-party in St. Louis. Party will lead into a November 1st writing kick-off. Hopefully there’ll be room for me in there somewhere. Writing should go till about 2 AM.
Writing will be helped along throughout the month by write-ins all over the St. Louis metro area. Planning is in the works for write-ins out St. Charles and St. Peters way.
Beyond the face time though, I’d still love to have some extra buddies along for the ride. You’ll find me on the nanowrimo site as tojosan. Go. Click. Buddy.
What’s your novel?
