NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, I have wanted to participate. The concept is simple: write your little heart out through the month of November and get the first 50,000-word draft of a novel finished in a month. Last year I decided to give it a shot, except that my "No" part of the word was going to stand for "Nonfiction."
Well, it didn't last. November is a horrible month to write frenetically, in my opinion. We who are in education-careers related can't begin to dream of a November project like this. We need NaNoWriMo in July.
Still, the siren song of NaNoWriMo calls. So I've decided to do a writing project, but it will be my own recipe this next month, my own theme. I don't promise to hit all the days, but I'll hit some, with a goal of posting something daily--a practice I've let lapse since the faithful postings of my first few years of blogging. I've pre-drafted several days' worth of topics, and hope you'll enjoy them. It's been fun.
Here we go.
