This post is my entry into the Jeff Goins YouAreAWriter.com contest. My video entry is below.
On a whim I thought I would enter. Why not? I am a writer after all. I thought it would be good fun. I’ve never declared that I was a writer before. It’s just what I am. Since the day I first put squiggly lines to the page before I even knew how to spell I was a writer.
Hey everyone. I know that’s it’s been a while since I’ve written. But I’ve got some great news to shout about. I won NaNoWriMo!
What’s NaNoWriMo? NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. It’s the time of year that comes every November when writers everywhere start losing their minds as they try to write a novel by the end of the month.
It’s all very frenetic as everyone tries to hit their 50,000 word count by November 30th. Over sixteen hundred words a day. One Thousand Six Hundred and Sixty-Seven words to be exact. That’s about 4 single spaced pages and 8 double spaced pages.
