I have committed to NaNoWriMo, which begins today.
If you are not familiar, NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month, and it is actually a nonprofit organization that provides online (and sometimes face-to-face) support for people who want to commit to writing 50,000 words in 30 days. It really is a spectacular setup, and is an incredible opportunity for anyone who thinks they may have a novel inside of them, ready to see the light of day.
I’ve enjoyed writing since elementary school, and even took a creative writing class in college. It was so much fun, and a great break from my regular course of study. If I had it to do over again, I may have chosen a different career route, and at the very least would have made more time to write.
I think this blog has helped my writing, and to this day, people continue to tell me I should write a book, so I am.
I’m doing it.
What do you want to do? What’s stopping you from doing it?
