NaNoWriMo: National Novel Writing Month aka November.
I don’t normally participate in NanoWrimo, I never have the time… or at least that’s what I tell myself. So this year, I am making myself participate. Why? I have two unwritten novels that I am just bursting at the seams to get onto paper or a Word document.
It may not be the most opportune time, I have a Senior Thesis due in December, I’m still in the midst of my last Fall semester, I really shouldn’t be participating. So why do it? Why stress myself out and spread myself thin? Because if I don’t do it now, will I ever?
I want to be a published novelist one day, but if I always put my novels in the back of my mind they’ll never be published, and it will just be a dream. I may not finish the novel within the month, but I would have at least started it.
If I don’t actively pursue my dream, that’s all it will ever be, a dream. So here’s to NanoWrimo being the first step to a dream come true!
