About NaNoWriMo

I don't really know if this is possible. We'll be in Philadelphia and Spokane for November, then to Costa Rica, but I've signed up for NaNoWriMo. This crazy and rapidly spreading writing scheme has thousands of participants, each writing 50,000 words in one month. That's one incredible draft. And we all start with word 1 on November 1. So, poetry to the side, revisions to the side, I'm taking the month of November off and plunging into . . . I don't know what yet! Any one else want to play? For more info, go to


  1. I signed up for it too!! Hoping it would get me to finally get back into a rough draft I put away a long while ago. But now I fear I bit off more than I can chew. Maybe I'll do 50, 000 worth of short stories instead.

  2. I am at 39300 and struggling. I hope you were able to hang in with it. I will be writing as much as I can this week and praying ot make it across the finish line :)
