My NaNoWriMo Project

This week I got a little bit behind on my Wings Sprint, so I’ve decided to blog about something else.

If you’ve been following my blog for around a year, you should know that every year I participate in a program called NaNoWriMo. That’s an abbreviation of National Novel Writing Monthy (Which is November). I have participated and won 2 times and plan to win this year as well.

The idea is that you write an entire novel in the month of November. For adults, the minimum word count to win is 50,000 words. As a kid, I can decide what my word goal is. In 2014 I won with 12,000 words and in 2015 I won with 14,000 words (maybe 15,000, I’m not positive about that). This year I want to write 18,000 words. Kids can change their goal up until the last week of November, though, so if I need to I can lower it to be more realistic for my schedule and what’s happening in my life.

This year I’m super excited about my plot! I was actually a bit too excited, though, and I’ve already started writing. I have a few thousand words. I’ll start a new document once November starts so that I can keep track of what I wrote solely in November. I don’t believe this is unfair as long as I don’t use my writing from the summer as part of my November writing.

I’d be interested in started a group on this site if anyone else was going to participate this year! I really suggest it enjoy it every year. The feeling of satisfaction when you’re done is awesome.
