Everyone Has a Story

Everyone Has a Story

Today I began NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing.

Participants work towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel between November 1st and November 30th.

NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought fleetingly about writing a novel. National Novel Writing Month is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit (formerly known as the Office of Letters and Light). Their mission statement:

National Novel Writing Month organizes events where children and adults find the inspiration, encouragement, and structure they need to achieve their creative potential. 

One day in and I am exactly on track – 1667 words.  I’m still unsure what the novel will be about.  The first 1,000 words or so seem to be a warm-up and will probably be tossed out.  I will allow the plot to develop one day at a time and see where it goes.  See you on the flip side of November.

Do you have a story in you?
