     It's that time again! It's NaNoWriMo time! I know you're asking yourself, 'what the heck is that', right?
It stands for National Novel Writing Month. And it's here. Every November writers, wanna-be writers, non-writers and assorted others set a goal to write a novel in a month.
     Is it hard? Of course it is. I put it right up there with dieting and exercising on a consistent basis. But people do do it and they succeed.
     The goal is to write a little over 1600 words a day. This takes a bit of planning. My plan is to runaway from home, or duct tape the entire family until December, or just try to hide away from them and get my words done. I haven't decided which plan to go with yet.
     If you have ever considered writing a book, or your life story, or your grandmother's life story now is the time. Just Google NanNoWriMo and it will take you to the website to sign up. And here's the best part it's FREE! Yes you read that right, FREE.
     Once you are logged in you can enter your daily word count and go. A handy little graph will show your progress thought out the month. And remember if you don't get to 50,000 words, it's okay. If you wind up with 1000 for the month, It's a 1000 more than what you had in October. Right? Right?
