    NaNoWriMo is coming! Quickly,

    might I add, and I'm still clueless about what novel I want to write. The reason I'm so reluctant to just choose one and run is because I set this goal for myself a few years ago. I told myself I'd have a book published by the time I graduated high school, and now that I'm a...

    First Go At It This Year.

    National Novel Writing month in November. One of the people on EP mentioned it in one of their posts recently and until then I had never hear of it. Seen as I love story telling so much I just had to join in. It's fun and easy, but it has been going for 6 days already. The goal...

    I am new on ep but I knew I could find my NaNo

    family here too!! NaNoWriMo 2010 pretty much saved my life. I was suffering debilitating PPD after the birth of my first child and writing a novel that November is what pulled me out of it.

    The Love Of My Life

    God bless the wonderfully twisted mind that made NanoWrimo and the critters that make it possible every year. I have loved writing ever since i could hold a pen. And the 30 days that Nano forced me to channel my ideas to paper was the best month of my life! I swear, it was...

    Gearing up for my tenth Nano.

    Always like the pressure of the deadline - doesn't allow any procrastination.

    I Never Finish But I Still Enjoy It

    I fail at finishing things, but NaNoWriMo is a good exercise for me, helps me work on my motivation. I might have finished last year, but our computer got a virus and was down of a week during November. I cannot describe to you how excruciatingly frustrated and disappointed I was...

    Last November I wrote the first draft to my

    first novel. It was fantastic (the experience not the novel. in my opinion the novel sucks. but then again I guess I'm my own worst critic). It was a blast to write and I want to do it again if school allows me and I wish I had done it in July. bit things were too hectic. Next...

    The First-time Nano

    Hey, guys! I found the NaNoWriMo site a few months ago, and though I won't have enough time this time around to do the Camp NaNo summer sessions, I plan on being an official participant for the main challenge this November. I really enjoy the idea of the program and I am in the...
