One Week Until NaNoWriMo!

It's about time I wrote my post about Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month).

Yep, I'm planning to do it. Can I finish my current WIP in a week? No, probably not, but I'm still going to work on writing 50,000 words during November because I just can't pass up an opportunity like this! Not when people are going to be holding me to my promise. You can't BUY that kind of pressure.

Well, I guess you wouldn't want to buy pressure in the first place, but you get what I mean, right? The idea that somebody somewhere might come across the status bar and find me at 3,000 words at the end of November is kind of horror-fying. Thus, I will prevail. I will conquer. I will rule the Nanowrimo!

So add me as a buddy and watch me win.

Buddy Me

I want to watch one hundred writers complete a book in the month of November. To me, that would be the best manifestation of writerly awesome ever. Join us in committing to write 50,000 words in thirty days! It's going to ROCK the Hizzouse! <--I will try not to be this lame once Nano starts. I promise.

[No promises.]

Stop that, keyboard. You can trust me. I will not be lame.

[E for Effort.]

Not nice, keyboard. Not. Nice.

p.s. The WriteOnCon chat with Sara Megibow of Nelson Lit Agency was really, really fun and informative. You can still read the whole thing on the WriteOnCon blog, and I recommend you do.

p.p.s. Mark your calendars for the query chat this Thursday with THE Query Ninja herself, Elana Johnson!


  1. Yay -- I've added you to my buddy list. NaNo is the perfect way to stay accountable to your word count. And with so many people on the same journey, it's easier to forge on. Good luck with your project!

  2. I saw you on my buddy list, Emy, and it made me smile! Thanks for remembering me. It will be so fun to keep up with my blog buddies during nano. Good luck with your project, too!

  3. I added you! I'm there under "lizwrites." Can't wait!

  4. I'm adding you to my buddy list. What a neat idea. I'vebeen abit foggy in the brain department lately and haven't even thought of seeking out fellow bloggers as NaNao buddies :)

    Write on!

  5. Yay for buddies, Liz and Jen! Thank you!
