Tomorrow, We Write

Well, not tomorrow. The next day. But NaNoWriMo is about to start up again, so I thought I’d fill people on what it is.

NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month, every November. You sign up and you make the effort to write 50,000 words of a novel in one month. I’ve done it, and won it, five times and three of those novels have gotten contracts for publication (On the Air was my 2006 novel, World on Fire was my 2005 novel under the title “Incendiary,” and my 2008 novel, Confused by Shadows, will be out in 2011 or so!).

It’s a great way to get motivated to finally write that novel. There’s something about knowing there are thousands of other people just as crazy as you, venturing out into the untamed world of their own creation. Characters, plots, situations, funny lines, tragic deaths, random clowns, all finally coming out and being put down on paper. It’s just the sort of thing to keep you inspired to keep on writing.

So check out the website – – and see what all the fuss is about. It might not be easy – heck, it’s definitely not easy – but it’s a whole load of fun. Hope to see you there (my name is Geonn over there, feel free to drop me a line!)
