Ever Heard of NaNoWriMo?
No, it has nothing to do with Mork from Ork.
NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month, otherwise known as . . . November.
It’s a time of year when thousands of writers sit down to draft and complete a novel in thirty days or less. You can find out more at the NaNoWriMo website.
I’ve never subjected myself to such agony until now, but it’ll all be worth it. If I manage to complete the task of 50,000 words in 30 days, I will be awarded . . . a virtual badge.
That’s right. A string of computer code to paste on my blog. It just doesn’t get better than that.
Wish me luck. Send me chocolate. Buy me these cool shoes.
