Have you ever heard of NaNoWriMo? I hadn’t heard of it until last year during the middle of November and by then it was too late for me to get into it, but the basic idea is to write a 50,000 word novel in the span of 30 days.
Now, if you are like I was, you probably are initially thinking that such an effort would be simultaneously grueling and pointless.
However, as a public communicator, I have become fascinated in recent years at how powerful fiction is, and I want to learn it for myself.
So, I have been thinking for a while now that I should try to write some fiction, and now this opportunity comes along for me to pull on my naturally competitive bent to accomplish something I’ve wanted to do for a long time…
So, I’m going to give it a shot.
I’ll have to average 1,667 words per day for the next 30 days, and I have no idea if I will be able to make it all the way through. I rarely finish big projects that I start.
I’m going to need some encouragement, so if you want to read what I write, let me know and hold me accountable!
