Every year on November 1st, writers from all over--at least those that choose to do so--participate in NaNoWriMo. I've told you about it before... like, last November. I participated in NaNoWriMo for the past two years and was on the fence about it this year.
So... I'm unofficially going to do NaNo, with my critique group (WWWPs - that stands for Wild Women Wielding Pens - that name came from the clever Sioux), and the other clever one, Tammy created our little unofficial official shield for Wi(ld)Wo(men)DoNaNo. Yes, the other two (Linda and Beth) are clever too. Yeah, me too. I guess that's why we all gel so well.
We'll be writing/rewriting whatever we feel like versus strictly fiction. This way we can ride the wave of NaNoWriMo! Woot! Woot! I learned about Woot! Woot! my first year doing NaNo. I'm not sure if it still exists, but I'm Woot! Wooting! anyway.
Good luck to everyone participating or not... just keep writing.
Stay tuned here for reports of my November daily writing... or in my case, rewriting.
And if you want to see a few photos of where I spent a day in MN, Kate at A Curious Endeavor shows it quite well.
