Let’s write novels together: NaNoWriMo 2011

Happy National Novel Writing Month!

Every year I debate whether or not to join the fray on this 30-day writing marathon, which I have participated in—and won!—in the past. This year I’ve come up with a title for a potential novel, but I haven’t done any actual writing or brainstorming thus far.

It’s only day 4, which means I can still get up to speed if I apply myself on the 1,667 words a day program, but I think this year I will sit out the new novel-writing experience (having already written a novel in 3 days) in favor of continuing to work on my ever-in-progress novel, Naked Montreal, instead. If I write or edit 1,667 words each day, I’m sure to have it finished in a month, right? Consider it National Novel Editing Month, four months early (it’s “officially” in March).

Write your novel with me at WriteByNight

If you’re in Austin during the month of November, join me and the WriteByNight crew for official NaNoWriMo write-ins on Saturdays throughout the month. I’ll be heading up some of the Saturday sessions from 10 AM to 1 PM, so stop by if you have any questions about noveling in 30 days, want to check out my copy of No Plot? No Problem!, or just want to say hi.

You can also write your novel “unofficially” during regular WriteHere hours, which are Tuesdays from 11 AM to 3 PM, Wednesdays from 4 to 8 PM, and Saturdays from 10 AM to 4 PM. You can find WBN at 1305 E. 6th Street, Suite 4.

Looking forward to meeting some of you in the real world, and good luck to all the NaNoWriMo novelists out there!
