NaNoWriMo 2014

Okay, this is TOTALLY NOT BEAUTY RELATED!!! So feel free to skip it if you want!

For all kinds of crazy reasons, I will be participating in this year's NaNoWriMo event. What the heck is that?? It's stands for "National Novel Writing Month" and has been held every November since 1999. Basically, you write an entire novel in one month (50,000 words in 30 days!). Yes, crazy. I'm sure the vast majority of people write novels but others (those "rebels") write dissertations, poetry, scripts, short stories, etc. At the end of the month, you can upload your work for official word-count purposes (no one actually reads it, at least not the officials) and if you succeeded you get a nifty "I did it!" certificate and some coupon codes for fun writer-y stuffs. This is a world-wide event and yes, it is FREE to participate! There are also tons of local NaNoWriMo groups (online and on Facebook) so you can make some friends and get some support on your work. There are meet-ups and events planned locally so explore!

SO, anyone else doing it?? I have my account set up over at NaNoWriMo if anyone wants to add me as a buddy (click here!). :)

I'm SUPER excited but also totally terrified! What will come out of my head?! I have a few ideas -- one for an X-Files 3 film script and one for a novel. Not sure which one I'll focus on for November. I'm not sure I'm going to do a mani challenge for November, I might chop off all my nails down to nubbins to make the laptop writing process easier. :)

Anyway, join me!! <3

  1. Brilliant! Go you :) Perhaps short nails on bold, fun colours is the way to go that month. Hope you'll be sharing your progress with us!
