NaNoWriMo - The name alone makes me want to run from the house screaming, "I can do it!" For those who have no idea what this unusual combination of letters means, it stands for, National Novel Writing Month. It is a challenge for all writers to write at least 50,000 words of a novel within the 30 days of November. If you don't write on Sunday, this comes out to approximately 2500 words a day. Breaking it down a little further, at 250 words a page, that's 10 pages, double spaced a day.

Are you up for the challenge? Can you do it? Why not give it shot?

I've decided, along with many of my writing buddies, to accept this challenge and work on my romance novel, Forever In My Heart. Come join us by signing up at the website listed above. Make sure you look me up and list me on your buddy list, then let me know so I can add you to mine. That way we can cheer each other on. My user name is "CKBryant". Hope to see you there.

By the way, have a Happy Halloween!


  1. I'm adding you as my writing buddy right now christine! I've been planning on doing Nano this year even though I had no idea what to write. But the motto of Nanowrimo is "No Plot, No Problem" I was going to take it at it's word. Last night I prayed for help with my writing and this morning I woke up from a dream with a character so real in my head that I can't wait to write about her. I must say I really was starting to stress about not having a story to write, but the Lord sent an idea with a whole day to spare!! LOL!

  2. I'm participating for the first time this year! I'm Feywriter on the official site as well. :-)

  3. I'm in! I just signed up and am nervous as all get out, but I'm excited too, especially knowing there are other moms with young kids reaching for this goal along with me.

    I found your blog through Jessie O. just this past week. So glad I did!

  4. I added Nikki and Feywriter, but didn't get Kelli's user name. Will you post it here so I can add you to my NaNo writing buddy list. Tomorrow is the day. YIPPEE!! Hope you girls are ready.
