NANO: And So It Has Begun

November 3, 2010

Song of the day: Semi-Charmed Life by Third Eye Blind

I would say I was eyeball deep in NANOWRIMO at the moment, but that is only partially true.

NANOWRIMO is the affectionately slangy term for National Novel Writing Month. This is 30 days of  “literary abandon”. Authors scurry to write at least 1667 words a day to meet the 50,000 word mark by midnight, November 30th. We laugh, we cry, we bang our heads against the keyboard to purge words into a novel. Doesn’t matter that the novel likely won’t make a bit of sense.

It’s day three and you can be assured that I have not written the minimum word count. But it’s not for lack of trying. Honestly, the baby doesn’t take long enough naps for me to squeeze in the magic number. However, I have made progress that I am happy with.

So, to honor NANOWRIMO, here is a vidoe clip I hope you enjoy.

Happy Writing!
