This isn't the first year a friend has tried to convince me to join National Novel Writing Month, but it is the first time I've agreed. And now, two days in, my brain is as blurry as this picture.
It's always been easier for me to write during the fall and winter months. There's just something about being all bundled up and cozy with a cup of hot tea that makes me feel more like a capital-w Writer. (Plus, let's be honest, it's far easier to coop yourself up and write when you aren't tempted by the 80-degree weather outside.) In any case, now felt like as good a time as any to really set aside some time to write, so now I'm aiming for that 50,000-words-in-a-month goal... Any other takers?
If you're a writer, too, and you're interested in taking on the challenge, sign up at NaNoWriMo.org and then let me know! It's way more fun to do this sort of thing with a few friends, so if you decide to start a new novel, keep me posted — any and all support helps, right?
