NaNoWriMo, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…
1) You taught me I could actually write 50,000 words in on month2) You taught me making stuff up is fun
3) You taught me to keep writing forward, because everything can be fixed in revisions4) One very undisciplined year, you taught me I could write 25,000words in three days, and you taught me why I didn’t want to do that ever again
NaNoWriMo may be one of the best things I’ve ever done. Ever. The forums are open today – go check them out and once you’re sufficiently inspired, use the rest of October to plot your Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius so we can write together in November. Give me a shout – my new and improved user name is Lisa Bouchard. Y’know, for a writer, you’d think I’d be more creative…We all have a novel in us – make 2011 the year you write yours!
Late breaking news! To add me as a writing buddy, this may help:
