Okay, for all you non-writerly types–there’s this little thing called NaNoWriMo. It’s a huge deal for a lot of writers. Basically they spend the month of November writing an entire book. It’s supposed to be pretty fun and crazy stressful, but in the end you get a tangible book that you can revise and turn into something great.
It sounds like fun, but I didn’t participate.
I’m way disappointed that I didn’t. People everywhere are talking about getting their 50k done and actually getting to edit their little baby books. That’s my favorite part of the process. That very first read-through where you laugh at yourself and your silly mistakes. When your book is supposed to suck and it’s not a big deal to have piles upon piles of typos.
So, here’s me saying that NEXT year I am totally gonna do it. Got that internet? Next November I’m in. You can quote me. 🙂
