So remember that 30 day challenge I posted a few weeks ago where I was going to do a couple lessons of Korean a day?
Oh yes, that’s right. I publicly admit that I failed on my own challenge. I can’t even say I started and got distracted. I never even did one lesson. That is pathetic.
However, I am willing to take the chance at humiliating myself further with an even bigger challenge…
NANOWRIMO (imagine that being said in the big scary Wizard of Oz voice with flashing lights all around)
NaNoWriMo is coming our way folks and despite last year’s sad, sad failure with me writing only 4,000 out of 50,000 words, I am ready to try again. If you have not yet heard of NaNoWriMo, it’s short for National Novel Writing Month which happens every November. It’s like a contest, only you are more…competing against yourself and Father Time instead of others. The goal is to write a novel of 50,000 words during the month of November. That means you have to write 1,667 words a day minimum. This, my friends, is no easy task. You are expected to finish November with a pretty ish-y novel, then go back and revise it later. The point is to get the words out of your head and onto the ‘paper.’
In preparation for the upcoming month, I headed to our much loved English bookstore today, What The Book, and stocked up on some used chicklit books (haven’t gotten an e-reader just yet) to help inspire me to be witty in my own forthcoming chicklit novel. I already have an idea for the novel so that’s definitely a step in the right direction.
Anyone else joining NaNoWriMo this year?
First book on the pre-NaNo-reading list…Every Boy’s Got One by Meg Cabot. About half way done in a matter of hours and laughing on just about every page. This woman is funny! She writes like I think. Perhaps I’ll write a review here for you when I’m finished.
Ta Ta For Now!!
