NaNoWriMo is coming up…..

NaNoWriMo is almost upon us, the countdown is on! Frankly I have very little faith in myself, but I’m planning to begin my attempt with a short story I wrote for class. So that’s something! I’ve been following the tags on Tumblr and oh my god some people are legends. The caliber of planning, the calenders… it’s all true dedication.


It’s a draft! The whole idea is just to churn the words out. Writing 50,000 words is an accomplishment irrespective of the quality. I’ve figured if I can at least get the words out the potentials are limitless from there. You have a tangible something to focus on once the words are out. Even if it’s all jumble and incoherent, it’s something for you and for your eyes, for your journey as a writer.

I have no idea how I’m even going to cope. 1667 words isn’t that big a quota to fill each day but my consistency with anything is a bit flaky.  In saying that, I’m sure there will be plenty of this….


But if I actually make it, I’m hoping it’ll end like this…


Who else has plans to give it a go? Or have you given it a go before? Do you advice for other budding writers out there? I’d love to hear from you 🙂
