National Novel Writing Month is starting in a few days and writers everywhere are frantically typing away to reach the goal of 50,000 words by the end of the month.

For those who are unfamiliar, NaNoWriMo is an important event in November for writers all over the world. It’s our version of a 5K Marathon or P90X. It’s when we flex our muscles and creativity and pour all of our blood, sweat, and tears into a rough manuscript that we will then spend the next several months polishing and editing.

I’ve personally never participated in NaNoWriMo in November, because I was always in school focusing on my final projects, papers, and exams. Those who could crank out a novel during a hectic time of year are the real MVPs of the writing world.

However, I do take place in Camp NaNoWriMo regularly! Check out my blog about my latest Camp NaNoWriMo experience here!

While I’m not taking place in NaNoWriMo this year, I am spending my time focusing on editing the sequel to The Art of Falling. Who knows, maybe I’ll be able to finish the second draft revisions by the end of the month!
