November is National Novel Writing Month.* I've always been fascinated by the concept of NaNoWriMo and am thinking about participating this year, despite the fact that I don't think I've written something fictional since elementary school. The point of NaNoWriMo isn't necessarily to write something great – it's to give yourself the motivation to write to a goal.
Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel.
Sounds fun. And I've got a couple of ideas rattling around in my brain. We'll see how it goes. I'm going to use my favorite writing app, Ulysses, to manage the writing process and daily goals. And of course, I'll post updates here about how it's going.
Also, I need a new a mug.
* November is also Movember.
