Halloween has come and gone and now November is upon us. As I mentioned in my last post that means it is National Novel Writing Month (aka- NaNoWriMo) (aka- Nano Rhino).
I’ve never given the NaNoWriMo challenge a try, but this year I’m giving it a shot. I wanna see what I can do. The challenge is to write at least 50,000 words in the month of November. That’s a lot of work, but I’m gonna give it my best. If you break that number down, that means I should be writing roughly 1,666 words per day during the month of November.
I figure I will post little updates on here to log my progress from time to time during the month. It will either help to motivate me or shame me if I fail to meet my goal.
Aaaaand now it begins! This is either going to be hell, an amazing and rewarding experience, or both. 😀
As the weekend comes to a reluctant end, I gotta say: It was a pretty damn good one!
Went used book hunting with the bestie, and we even scored a couple freebies. We were both pretty excited to find three hardcover books written by Joe Hill (all of which are in excellent condition). I personally have only ever read his graphic novels in the Locke & Key series, but I like the way the man’s brain works. I had been curious about checking into some of his non-illustrated novels as well, so this was the perfect chance to do just that. I purchased a copy of his book N0s4a2 at my lovely lady friend’s recommendation, and she herself purchased Heart-Shaped Box and Horns. Needless to say, those finds along with the rest of our haul, made us quite the happy little campers.
And because our library loves its readers, we even got to pick up a couple gift cards to our favorite local cafe for participating in the adult summer reading program it does each year. Dark chocolate mint frappes with an extra shot of espresso could only serve to enhance an already splendid day. 😉
