So, one more post after this to reach my goal. Probably I'll do one closer to Halloween.

But NaNoWriMo is almost heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere!!! I'm so excited!

For those of you who don't know, NaNoWriMo is National November Writing Month. Shortened to NaNoWriMo and then just down to NaNo.

In short, NaNoWriMo is where a bunch of people try to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. Challenging? Heck yes!

I participated last year and I only got 8,000 words, which is roughly 14 pages. And it was hard to do that much!

One thing you should keep in mind. Don't nitpick over the story. Just get a vague idea and write it. It's quantity over quality in this game. I had a problem with that last year, so my story wasn't that great and neither did I finish. Or come close to finishing.

But now I have my trusty laptop Jin! And another year of writing experience. I'm so going to do this. I might kill myself, but Oh. My. Gosh. It's such a challenge and it's one that I know I could actually do! I'm not that great of a writer, so ones about quality of writing gives me no chance.

So anyways...I'm excited for this! I think there are prizes for those who win, but really, I don't care about that part. I just want the victory of winning it, period!

Off to go draft an outline or something. :D

I have a few friends who are planning on doing NaNoWriMo as well.
