The goal in NaNoWriMo is to write 50k words from November 1st to November 30th. If you can do that then you win. What do you win? You just win. Me personally, I'll be treating myself to some NaNoWriMo swag; most likely a T-shirt to add to the ever-growing monster of a collection I own that I plan to one DIY into a ginormous quilt. Hey, don't judge me. If I can teach myself to draw/paint, play guitar, tattoo, skateboard (unfortunately it fades with ever-growing uncooperative knees), cook, and write then I can certainly learn to make a quilt....one day.
To reach the goal, participants must write nearly 1,700 words every day for a month. For me personally that will be quite the challenge, and I've no doubt my brain will love the break once it's done, but I love the idea of the incentive and the accountability. However, don't expect a whole lot of blog entries from me next month.
As always, thank you for spending the time you do reading my blog, sharing it, and commenting.
