BlogMo 1: An Experiment

Hello all. In case you didn’t know, November is National Novel Writing Month; an annual event wherein you try and write a 50,000 word novel over the course of thirty days.

I tried this a couple years ago and got a little over 12k words into a novel that has languished untouched since then. Last year’s NaNo came and went without any attempt or participation from me (new baby and work woes just didn’t allow it). This year… well, things are a little different.

Let me be clear — I am not going to try and crank out 50k words over the next thirty days. But I want to do something.

So, over the next 30 days, I am going to try and post to this blog at least daily. The topics will be varied and the thoughts are likely to be scattered, but I have been itching to write more, and I’ve been telling myself that I will start writing again. I just haven’t actually done anything about it.

So, November is going to be my Blogging Month, or BlogMo. Think of it as my attempt at solidarity with my fellow struggling writers out there, and an attempt at getting into a more regular writing habit.
