That's right! National Novel Writers Month began a minute ago and my roommate is typing away on her story as we "speak."
What is NaNo? Well...it's when a bunch of people around the world, who love to write, decide to throw away a social life for the month of November, and try to write a 50,000 word novella (or 50K of a novel...for novels are longer than just 50K, let's be honest). In cities all over the globe, there are groups that meet up daily to have write-ins either in person or online, gathering in the chat room for their area vs. in person at a café who doesn't mind 5-30 people with laptops taking up space while they drink a lot of coffee/tea and eat sugar and carbs.
YAY FOR SUGAR, CARBS, AND CAFFEINE!
Because I was asked for a full manuscript by an editor at a large publisher for this Contemporary Romance novel...and I want to get it to her before the year is out.
So...wish me luck! Since I'm editing, I won't be able to do that on my iPad...so it'll all need to be done either on my work computer during my lunch breaks, after hours, and at home...you know, where the puppy is, staring at me like, why are you sitting there staring at yet another glowing object and not playing with me!?
Thus why I'm asking for some luck to come my way...cause I have NO idea how I'm getting this book to 90K.
Take care out there WriMo's....I won't see you all as much this time around, but know that I'll be busting my ass!
