National Novel Writing Month

So you may or may not have heard, but November is National Novel Writing Month!

Who knew? Well strangely enough, lately I have been thinking about writing a book (or two, or three!). I have been trying to get back into reading for pleasure which has immediately sparked multiple ideas. Based on my experiences over the last couple of years, from studying abroad in Australia to moving to NYC, there is a lot of material to choose from! I am by no means an expert and have never even taken a creative writing class in my life, but I figure why not?

To help me focus in on this goal throughout the month of November, I have signed myself up on the National Novel Writing Month website. It is REALLY easy, and takes only a matter of minutes! You create a profile to commit to writing 50,000 words throughout the month, (not going to lie that number is pretty intimidating!). Instead of posting your work directly on the site, you simply update your word count. You can update your word count as frequently or infrequently as you would prefer, allowing you to go at your own pace. It is not until November 20th through November 30th, that you can paste the full text of your novel, and receive a trophy badge announcing your win! There are also a few prizes if you’re interested πŸ˜‰ I am excited to see what happens and if I can come up with something unique and fun!

Have any novel ideas that you are dying to write down? Or do simply want to try out a new hobby?
