Write Away! It's National Novel Writing Month...
It's National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo.
Most of you writers out there know all about NaNo.
This year I am not "officially" registered, but I am participating with my own set goals for the month. I'm going to play along.
I have a half-finished novel that I would love to complete by December 1st.
I decided to set my goal at a 47,000 word count for the month of November. It's several thousand over what I really need. I figure to give myself some extra words and not set a definite limit. Over the weekend I managed 4 K even though we had company on Friday and Saturday. For me, Nanoing seems to really make me hunker down and get it done.
I do work a full time job so this is a real challenge. So far, I find myself writing before work while having my coffee, and after dinner until bedtime. Samwise, our newly adopted Australian Cattle Dog, seems to be content to lay at my feet. He is getting used to being a writer's dog.
Do you participate in NaNo? Why? Why not?
I'm unplugging for a week to see how it goes. Comments are turned off. Coffee is on constant brew.

Happy November! Write away!
