So, I'm trying my hand at my first NaNoWriMo. My mother has tried it before and so have some of my friends but this is the first time I've really looked at it seriously. I've always had this fear when it came to writing. This little editor in my head that always said that what I was writing wasn't good enough. Now that I have finished my first three novels that little editor has been shot and buried in the backyard.
I highly recommend people give it a go. It is a great way to get over that fear of writing and being rejected. You are a winner if you reach your writing goal. They don't care how good or bad your writing is. To write 50,000 words is hard but very rewarding when you can pat yourself on the back and say you have done it.
Here is a link to NaNoWriMo and sign up for yourself.
So, I'm using this as an opportunity. I have a series that hasn't been working. Mainly because I focus on the wrong thing. I'm using NaNoWriMo to get this series going. Make that commitment and you will be surprised at what you can achieve.
Cheers! Here is to my next series the Wyvern Chronicles and to my first novel Blazing Blunderbuss.
