Today is the first day of National Novel Writing Month. If you have been wanting to get started with (or finish) your novel, here is your chance to get some accountability and support. All you have to do is sign up and fill out your profile, commit to write 50,000 words, and post your progress. During the course of the month you can win badges, get some inspiration and will finish (or at least put a big dent into) your novel!
I’m not participating in the challenge this month because I am just coming off the Write 31 Days Writing challenge (on my personal blog). However, I am going to do a personal mini-version of the challenge by making a commitment to finish the two ebooks I have started!
If you aren’t interested in writing a novel, you can do as I am and do your own personal challenge. You can make a commitment to finally put together that short story (or flash fiction) collection you were meaning to get to. Or, you can get working on that book of poetry you have swimming in your head. Or whatever. Do you want to start a journal? Do you want to start writing some snippets of memories for that memoir your family keeps telling you to write? Now is your chance! Now, I don’t know if these qualify for the National Novel Writing Month, but you can alway ask. Or, just do the challenge on your own.
The point is: get writing! Stop procrastinating and get working on your writing!
