All right, all right, all right she says in the best Matthew McConaughey impression, in her head.
It’s National Novel Writing Month and for the blogging community National Blog Post Month. A push to kick it up a notch in the writing department.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with these terms, feel free to do a quick Google search because there is tons of information on both events. Or you can just continue to read on. I used to post links to sites like BlogHer for more information, but it seems the links have disappeared on earlier posts on the subject.
National Novel Writing Month is when authors, and writers, push to reach 50,000 words by the end of November. A motivation, a goal, to get your novel done or at the very least make a sizable dent.
Piggy-backing on this writing event, is National Blog Post Month where bloggers post one post a day every day for the month of November.
It’s been three years since I discovered this event and the one time I successfully completed 30 days of blog posting was last year. This year, I hope to keep up the momentum. And as it happens every year, when you think you’re ready for it, you have a game plan, you realize you don’t. This year is no different for me. You’d think I would be better prepared for it. Regrettably, this is not the case.
The rough outline I have scheduled for the month is to post the usual stuff (I know, I know. It’s sorely lacking, but I’m trying. I promise!) and more mindful of what I post. I want to say I want to up the ante on quality as well, but I’m not so sure I’ll succeed at that one. So, one step at a time. One step at a time.
Let us see where Words take us this month. I’m interested to see how this plays out this month.
