It’s almost April, and that means we’re just days away from the start of Camp NaNoWriMo. NaNoWriMo, for those of you not in the No (sorry, couldn’t help it), means National Novel Writing Month.
Many people have asked me when I found the time to write Don’t Ask Me to Leave. I actually wrote it during NaNo several years ago and then sat on the manuscript. NaNo isn’t a “real” contest in the sense that you “win” a prize when you’re finished. It’s more a way to motivate you to get into a routine of writing every day.
April is like “NaNoLite”–it’s a little more friendly for young writers, but it’s still a good time to get involved and challenge yourself to write.
I will be NaNo-ing the plot I’ve outlined for The Soldier’s Wife, my retelling of the story of David, Bathsheba, and Uriah.
Will you NaNo? If so, share with me so I can help encourage you on your path! Visit campnanowrimo.org for more info!
