NANOWRIMO: YEAH IT'S A MOUTHFUL

So it's November and for all of you that don't know it yet, I am a writer. Yes you heard me a writer. You might have read some of my papers on here or even seen my post about myself and my series The Adventures of Marco and Carla. Well this month I have taken up a whole new venture. What is it you ask? Well it's NaNoWriMo of course.

NaNoWriMo is an event open to all writers out there. The quest of NaNoWriMo is to try and write 50,000 (Yes I said 50,000) words by the end of November. Each year thousands of writers put a side what they are doing to participate in the event and this year I am one of those writers. I was hard at work on the next volume to The Adventures of Marco and Carla series when I decided to take a break from it and try this out, also it's for school.

So I am currently writing a new story and of course it's YA because that's all I really write, besides papers for class. Hopefully I will have it done by the end of November and published for you find people to read and enjoy. Also if you are a writer check out the NaNoWriMo website NaNoWriMo Link it's a great way to test yourself to see if you have what it takes to write a novel in one month.

Sadly I don't think I will be writing a whole novel. But I am aiming high and trying to get close to those 50,000 words. Who knows maybe I will prove myself wrong and make it to the 50,000 words. Oh yeah you might be wondering what you get for doing this. Well if you get up to 50,000 and after you've sent your story in to be checked (You must write 50,000 words). They will let you know if you've won and when you have you can have a polished manuscript and also publish your book with Createspace and get 5 free copies of your published book.

So brush off that pen of yours and that idea that you have stuck in your head put it paper and write what might be the next great novel.

P.S. If you are on Google + you will fine tunes of great writers on there in NaNo circles that you can talk to and bounce ideas of. We writers are awesome that way.
