It still surprises me how many writers don't know about National Novel Writing Month. It starts in November and goes for the full month. The goal is to write 50,000 words in 30 days. It sounds crazy, I know, but it is very vital in teaching us to just write!! I've only attempted Nanowrimo twice and I didn't finish either time, but I did enjoy the freedom to write, write, write, and to give myself permission to not edit. It is fun and exciting. This year, I would really like to attempt it again. Imean, it's not like I have any current writing projects that would get in the way. The only problem is that I have no ideas for a new story, so I am using morning writing and writing excercises to prompt a story idea for November. Here is the link to learn more about Nanowrimo. Who wants to join me? Do you already have an idea of what you're going to write? Do you outline before? How do you prepare?
Also, since I'm needing writing exercises, I want each of you to write a noun and a verb in the comment section. Then I will write them on separate pieces of paper and randomly choose out one of each when I get stuck. I will then try to incorporate those words into a sentence, or if I'm lucky, into a whole paragraph or story. Feel free to do the same! Thanks everyone!
