It’s that time again. A chance to jump aboard the insanity ship and set sail with all my awesome writerly friends.
Yes, June signals the beginning of JuNoWriMo or in layman’s terms June Novel Writing Month. Hosted by the lovely A.E. Howard and Becca J Campbell, JuNoWriMo encourages writers to…well write (duh) 50,000 words during the month of June.
See where the insanity part comes in? One way ticket to the padded white room. I kid, I kid.
Seriously though, JuNoWriMo is more than just writing 50,000 words – an entire novel (or a good start) – it’s about community, unity and networking. It’s about developing our craft as writers. It’s about sitting our butts down – no excuses – and starting or finishing that pesky novel. It’s about supporting each other and having a lot of fun in the process!
So this year I am attempting to reach the 50k mark. I fell short last year and if I’m being honest…which I suppose I should be…I fell short during November (NaNoWriMo). But this year I’m doing it because gosh darn it I have way too many novels that need to be finished!
I hope you decide to join me and the other
crazy awesome writers! We can lose our minds together!
