November is National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo.

I have always wanted to write a novel and have started many times over the years. The goal of NaNoWriMo is to write 50,000 words in the month of November (roughly 1,667 words per day) that leaves you with a manuscript for a novel in only one month.

This year I heard about NaNoWriMo and thought "one day, I'm totally going to do that". Then I remembered the importance of practicing what you preach and at the last possible minute, I went for it!

I am using scrivener by Literature and Latte to organise my ramblings. I only made it to 403 words after getting home from interstate but I made solid progress on my plot outline. This. Is. So. Exciting! There just is not enough hours in a day when you are this inspired and clear.

And it all started with a little dream, a little bit of action and a little bit of faith in myself. Your dream is there for the taking, There is no right way to start. Just decide and go.
