I guess it's like a contest

I'm officially signed up again this year for the National Novel Writing Month. You can keep track of me on the NaNoWriMo website, my profile is moxie.girl. You can only view my profile if you sign up to participate, so why not? Go ahead. Write for a month and see what happens.

This year I'm taking an approach to writing for the NaNoWriMo a bit differently. This year I am working on a collection of short stories. Stories that I'll sit down and write, not a novel by novel standards, but then again, for me this is a practice in writing discipline, not to produce a work that I'm utterly in love with and that fulfills all of my dreams of the work I'd want published.

Comment if you're doing NaNoWriMo this year too and tell me your profile name so we can encourage each other throughout the month. If you're not participating in the writing, check back here for updates on my progress and unedited excerpts of my stories.

OH. One more thing. Happy Fall, this is the best time of year, enjoy being outdoors while you still can.

Alright, I've friend-ed you. Let the writing commence!

I love collections of short stories. This will be fun.

How much time did you plan to set aside each day when you did this last year?

honestly? Like an hour. But if I was really into it or in a groove or something it would likely turn into three or four.
But on days I struggled, the hour was quite enough thank you.

I think I could set aside and hour each day (even if it is not consecutive!). I'll feel better knowing I'm not the only one with my head buried for all of November.

I think I might sign up too. I'd thought it was October, and missed the start date. But November sounds doable.

jem- do it, do it, do it.
