National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 p.m. on November 30. Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought fleetingly about writing a novel.
Over 250 NaNoWriMo novels have been traditionally published. They include Sara Gruen’s ‘Water for Elephants’, Erin Morgenstern’s ‘The Night Circus’, Hugh Howey’s ‘Wool’, Rainbow Rowell’s ‘Fangirl’, Jason Hough’s ‘The Darwin Elevator’, and Marissa Meyer’s ‘Cinder’.
I will be posting excerpts from the Nano WIP ( Work-In-Progress). I will also be posting thoughts, ideas, playlists, videos, rants, spazzings and anything else related to NaNoWriMo 🙂

This will be my third year participating and I’m a bit anxious and nervous yet again.
I’m excited at the prospect of producing a first draft yet, nervous that I won’t get that close again. But, I think me and good old trimethyl purine dione will persevere this year.
I have a basic idea for the story I’m going to focus on. Dystopian society ruled by mech technology that is also plagued by a nano virus. The idea fascinates me.
I’m breaking the “rules” and working on a piece that’s already in progress. I’m currently on Chapter 13 of this WIP.
