#21: NaNoWriMo!

I did it, for the first time ever: I signed up for National Novel Writing Month (a.k.a. NaNoWriMo)! The idea is to write 50,000 words in the month of November — or 1,677 words per day. My personal goal is to finish the first draft of The Blue Tattoo, my YA fantasy novel. For some reason, I think that sounds about right (or “write,” should I say?!).

I know I can hit that if I count all of my work writing and the Cavalieristas blogging, but can I hit it with my novel? YES, I CAN! And what better way to recover from the mid-term elections than by immersing myself in my own fantasy world for the rest of November!

What’s even more fun is the my niece Sofia has signed up for NaNoWriMo’s Young Writers program! So we’ll be writing together through November. Can’t wait to see what book she’s working on!
