Launching into November

I'm working on my next Amish Inspirational book. To get myself jump-started on this project, I signed up for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), the crazy notion that anyone can write a 50,000-word novel in a month. November is the month this takes place.

I've done NaNoWriMo on and off for many years, and it's always a hoot. Intense, yes; but a hoot.

I had so many magazine articles due this fall that I busted fanny to clear November as much as possible to allow me time to work on NaNoWriMo.

Is anyone else doing this crazy gig?


  1. Ah Patrice, I would like to this year - should do it this year - but will be out of pocket 50% of the month. It is a wonderful exercise though and I have done it successfully in the past.

  2. My kids' literature teacher (Lutheran school) is having the kids work on novels for November. Not 50,000 words, but an actual book with chapters and the like. I think it's a good challenge, my 11-year-old daughter is really excited, and even my 10-year-old son seems intrigued by the challenge.
