NaNoWriMo 2009

Last year was my first foray into NaNoWriMo. As I've mentioned in other posts, I'm still revising the story I created last November. And even though I have a long slog ahead of me to complete a 1st revision, I'm geared to participate in NaNoWriMo 2009, which starts on 1 November.

A month of no editing, just putting words down on piece of paper, (or onto a computer screen). I think it'll be very enjoyable. 50,000 new words in 30 days. Fun and challenging. (Can you tell I'm not much into editing just now?)

And this year will be extra special. My two older children have signed up via the Young Writer's Program. The 8 year has signed up for 5,000 words, and the 6 year old for 300 words.

So come December, the Velosa Household 2009 Wordcount will be 55,300 + ! Here's to some some awesome writing to come.

If anyone is interested learning more or participating, just follow the links included in the post. I may be lurking on the Forums, look for me, AnneV.

Wow - that is a lot of words for the Velosa household. It sure does sound like a lot of fun.

Let me know how I can help you!
