I love National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).
During the month of November, the NaNoWriMo goal is to write 50,000 words of a novel. I have a strong internal editor that always wants to correct or improve what I’ve written, so I’ve never been able to write 50,000 words in a month. But, I love the comradery of fellow authors and enjoy watching as they work to achieve their writing goals.
Author and friend Lisa Brunette wrote a full page article titled, The World Needs Your Novel, for our local paper. The article focused on a local write-in at the library and quoted my friends Amy Flugel and Jennifer Vandenberg. The article also included a nice picture of Jennifer.
I didn’t attend that event, but a few days later Jennifer came to my house for a critique meeting and I was able to get this picture with her.
So, another year will pass and I won’t “win” NaNoWriMo but, the good news is, several friends, including Jennifer, have.
