NaNoWriMo 2012: I’m taking the plunge

November 1, 2012

You guys, I’m not sure how it happened or what came over me, but for some ridiculous/astonishing reason I committed to NaNoWriMo 2012.

NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month – is a movement that encourages writing a novel – at least 50,000 words in length – during the month of November every year. It’s all neatly organized online at

Like I said, I don’t know how it happened. But it did. I have shared my goal with Hubz, I have written my daily word count quotas on the whiteboard in my office, and I am now sharing it with you.

Accountability. I’m going to need it.

I’m attempting this feat amongst all of the current roles in my life, not conceding to letting anything slack – mommy, wife, Vemma brand partner, Silicon Prairie News contributor, blogger, etc. This might lead to me pulling all of my hair out. This might lead somewhere fun. We won’t know until we try it!

I’ve added a widget to the sidebar and, if you’re up for it, you can keep tabs as I update my progress towards reaching fifty thousand words.

Thank you for being here, and for providing me an outlet these past few years to share my writing with you. And thank you in advance for your encouragement the next 30 days as I attempt to take that writing to a new and scary and exciting place.
