For the past few weeks, I have embarked on an interesting, albeit challenging adventure known as NaNoWriMo. This acronym stands for National Novel Writing Month. It began a few years ago, and has grown all over the world, challenging novelists to write a book in a month’s time.
I wasn’t sure I wanted to take the plunge. I had been knocking around an idea for a while, and when I received an email on Halloween, I decided it was now or never. So I did it. I made up the story as I went. I created the characters as I wrote, as well as the setting and everything else.
Today I reached my 50,000 goal! But I still have a ways to go before my novel is completed. At least now I can take a sigh of relief and relax a little bit. Only one or two chapters left, and my book will be complete! It is really rewarding to know I can actually do it. Which just goes to show you, if you set your mind to it, you can achieve anything your heart desires!
