NaNoWriMo Begins


It's November 1, and that means it's time for National Novel Writing Month.  Yes, I'm participating again this year.  50,000 words in 30 days.

I have never completed this task, but that's because I can't seem to turn off that internal editor.  Whether this year is my year to finish or not, I'm committed and ready to have a crazy month of fun.

In case any of you book bloggers are joining in the fun, I'm pavcrawphan over on the NaNo site; here's the link.

I haven't written anything yet, but I hope to find some time today after laundry is done and other chores are completed.  Who knows, I may start writing sooner rather than later.

***In other news***

I saw This Is It, the Michael Jackson documentary, this weekend and my review article is up over at D.C. Literature Examiner, if you are interested.  I really enjoyed the movie.


Rebecca at Just One More Page emailed me to let me know that my Virtual Walking Tour post on her blog is up and ready for commenting.

Interested??  Check out my stop here.

I think the key is just to write and not read it or edit it. Just let it flow and worry about the rest later!!!

And I really enjoyed your Virtual Walking Tour!

I've added you:)
Hope you're having fun with it.
My internal editor is screaming at me,telling me it's all crap, but I'm trying to shut it out with lots of music:D

You can do it! It's my 4th year and I haven't been successful in the past, but I think this is about the fun of it. My inner editor is wreaking havoc as we speak, trying to coerce me into deleting the lousy 195 words (where are the 20 extra words I had yesterday?) I've written so far.
Don't give up, one day the inner editor will be too tired fighting you!
Btw, I'm Kathrin P. on NaNo, in case anyone wants to add me.

Serena said...

Kathrin: I've added you. Good luck and ignore that internal editor.

Kathrin said...

Serena, thanks for adding me!
