November is NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. The idea is to write 50,000 words in the month of November on a brand new novel. That is about 1,666 words a day, each day for the month. That is a lot of writing. 50,000 words is the size of a doctoral thesis.
In the spirit of NaNoWriMo, there is also NaBloPoMo, which is National Blog Posting Month. Instead of having a certain number of words you are working towards, this is just about writing a post each day of the month.
I am not up to NaNoWriMo mostly because I don’t have any interest in novels–reading or writing. But, I do want to give NaBloPoMo a shot. The nice thing about it is that it is not limited to the month of November. It can be done any month. But, I choose this month to be my time anyway.
I will still be traveling for half the month, but I should be able to get some type of Internet access each day. Even if I have to write a post from my phone.
Day 1 is done!
