Years ago I participated in the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). It was a difficult challenge for me and I swore I would never do it again.
But this weekend a relative of mine signed up for the NaNoWriMo and asked if I would do it alongside her. She obviously hadn't listened to my suffering, or maybe she thought I was being dramatic.
She'll find out for herself soon enough.
So today I am unofficially doing the NaNoWriMo. You can follow my progress--the good, the bad and the ugly--at http://www.facebook.com/susanna.carr.
This challenge is going to show every writer her strengths and her weaknesses. My hope is that my writing output and consistency have improved since the last time I did the NaNoWriMo.
Have you participated in the NaNoWriMo? If you have any survival tips, please share them!
