No NaNo (or NaBlo)



This year, come November, many of my friends are participating in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and/or National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo). Can I get a cheer for the writers?

(Insert your supportive cheer routine here.)

While I salute both efforts, and have tried both in the past, this year I am doing neither. I’ll bet you’re wondering why. Well, I have three works in progress (WIPs) from previous years, and requests for various other bits of writing (poetry, the scene I owe Susan, etc.) that I need to get to. So, I will be spending the month of November working on them. Dedicated writing time! My hubby has been warned that I will be no fun during said month (except for your birthday, honey, don’t worry.) Better yet? If I manage to break through those walls of writer’s block/confusion/uninspiredness/general fuzzyheadedness/etc. I will let you know about it here. In this way, y’all can keep track of my creative efforts. I would also ask that anyone working on a creative endeavor during the same month, and also bothering to pop by my blog, would let me know how they are doing with the battle.

Let us all approach this most creative of months in our own way. I hereby dub it – National Write Anything Month (NaWriAnMo).

The party begins on Monday.

    Yay! NaWriAnMo is a great idea!

    I signed up for NaNoWriMo this year.

    Why?

    I don’t know.

    I don’t really write and I have NO idea for a novel.

    But I still have the thought that I want to write a novel in November.

    I’m still not sure if that’s possible given these circumstances.

    I think your plan for the month is excellent and I look forward to following your progress.

    Ahh, I love the way you think. As always. I’m already writing for NaWriAnMo — it’s the start of the charity drive at my place, after all.
