Last November I lost a piece of myself. It caused me to stop writing, which has had a huge impact on my life. We are approaching one year later and I want to pick up where I left off. In the past, I have participated in NaNoWriMo and plan to participate again this year.
My goal for the future is to get back on track. I am using this year’s NaNoWriMo to help me do this. I succeeded last year by writing 50,000 words and I am hopeful I will be successful again this year. My plan is to come back. Back to my art and writing, back to excitement and new experiences, back to myself and The Path I Chose.
I am excited to announce that I will be participating for the second time in NaNoWriMo.
For those of you who do not know, the goal of the National Novel Writing Month is to write 50,000 words starting November 1st and finishing up by midnight on November 30th. Not just any random words, the words that you would like to be part of your novel.
I participated last year but my intent was to find out if I had what it took to write 50,000 words at all. I used the opportunity to journal rather than to start a novel. I was slightly disappointed that I fell short of the goal but this year I have a better understanding of what is necessary to complete this process. This year I plan on being successful.
This was my first year participating in NaNoWriMo. I did not have a novel in mind just the desire to know if I could write fifty thousand words in a month. I was not able to complete it but I did put forth my best effort and now that I am aware of what I am in for, I will definitely be prepared for next year. All in all, I am proud of the fact that I tried.
