Ack, the acronym fairy has struck. No worries, I know this one NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month and this event happens every November. Each person is challenged to write 50,000 words in a single month and I decided to partake this year. Find more information at NaNoWriMo.org.
For me, it comes at the perfect time. I have been plotting a young adult fantasy series for years as I've learned more about the craft of writing so it is time to rewrite the story from the beginning.
I did this years ago before I had studied stories in depth so that manuscript will never see the light of day. This time around should be better when I get to December 1st. Plus I have writer friends who are doing the challenge and a few mentors set up to help me check my story as I go along.
I've got my music playlist set up and my writer check-ins scheduled.
Do you find specific type of music helps you create things? If you decide to take the plunge, my NaNoWriMo name is Melissa Borg.
