National November Writing Month, NaNoWriMo, NaNo, Na na na − okay that last one I made up.
Saying NaNoWriMo is awkward, but then the full title is long and the last words end up mumbled. Not that it matters, since any attempt to explain NaNoWriMo to non-writers is useless. I receive the cocked head and confused expression.
The main question asked is, “Why?”
My answer is that it sounds fun. Plus, I recently finished the rough edits of my novel (Yay!) I’m ready to let it sit for a while before I look at it with fresh eyes. A month away will do me some good, so it’s the perfect time to start something new.
I’ve decided to write a prequel to my novel. It will fit the word count and I have the characters ready to go in my mind. I’m excited to get started and I just need to flush out the full plot.
Wish me luck! And good luck to all who are participating this year.
Here are some resources I’ve read to prepare for NaNoWriMo:
