Each year, on November 1st, there are thousands of people hunched before a screen, writing furiously towards one common goal: 50, 000 words by midnight of November 30th.
Enter Nanowrimo, a movement that started in San Francisco with 21 people in 1999, and grows each year, with over 310, 000 participants in recent years. I’m proud to say that this year, after nearly a decade of saying ‘Some year I’d like to do that’ I’ve put fingers to keyboard and updated my word count today. 851 words so far. And hopefully more to come.
Please follow this link to see the success of another writer in my area, who is more brave than I, and actually posted her words for day one! (And go visit her at her first book signing!)
