It's NaNoWriMoTime!

It's that time of year again! It's NANOWRIMO time! 

National Novel Writing Month is fast approaching--1-30 November 2014. 

It's time to gear up and write that novel in one month!

Do you have an idea for a novel?
Have you already started writing a novel and then, left it?
Are you ready to write your novel and share it with the world?
Do you just want to write your story to share with family and friends and not publish it?

NANOWRIMO could be for you!

If you're like me, there have been days where I've lacked the discipline to write and keep my butt in my writing chair. This writing program was very helpful to me in that it gave me a goal and made me accountable to ME.

I began writing my second novel, Finding Gracia, in November 2012 with NANOWRIMO and I'm excited to finish it next month. I know that sounds nuts, but bear with me. I'm going for it! Again. Why not? My story is a story worth writing and sharing with the world. I do love a challenge, so I'm signing up.

Through joining NANOWRIMO, I learned to write and not worry about content. I wrote and wrote and knew that after November, I could go back and worry about the bits that weren't great. It was quite liberating and most of what I wrote wasn't bad, either!

Join me, won't you? Your story is worth getting out there! This could be your breakthrough year. I double dog dare ya :)



  1. That's wonderful, Ellie! I also want to finish a current work in progress with nanowrimo. Maybe we could check in with each other at the end of each writing day? :-)

  2. Hi Mayra! That sounds great to me! Let's do that :) It's always wonderful to have a writing buddy! Hugs right back to you!
