Tomorrow is November

October 31, 2019

November begins tomorrow and I’m curious to know if I have any WordPress friends who are going to take part in NaNoWriMo and write a book. Raise your hand if you are. I’ve never done that challenge because I’ve always been skeptical of writing a book in 30 days but that might just be a defense mechanism I use to justify a belief that I can’t write a book in any amount of time.

WordPress doesn’t make it easy to look back at old posts but a long time ago (2011?) I took part in NaBloPoMo where the goal was to write a blog post every day for a month. That was fun but that challenge hasn’t been around for a long time.

A couple of years ago I joined in on FlashNano. FlashNano is a month-long challenge hosted by Nancy Stohlman who is a writer and a teacher and a singer and a really great prompt writer. It’s really pretty simple: Nancy gives a prompt a day and you do the rest and then 30 days later you sit back and revel in your supreme success and eat pizza and chocolate chip cookies.

That challenge was a lot of fun and I actually wound up not posting most of what I wrote because I liked it too much and wanted to save it to work on later with the goal of trying to maybe get something published. I was moderately successful on the first part and not so very much on the second part which was OK because the pizza and chocolate chip cookies were good.

If you want to try FlashNano this year click here to sign up to receive the prompts.

    This may be the nudge that sends me over the edge.
    Interpret that any way you wish. 😮

    You’re going to binge on pizza and chocolate chip cookies?
