NaNoWriMo 2014 – Day 1


It’s that special time of year again! NaNoWriMo 2014 is officially in full swing and I am so excited/nervous/stressed/happy!

In case you’re new, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writer’s Month and aims to help it’s participants knock out 50,000 words in 30 days. This special month happens every year, and has been since 1999. They’ve help hundreds of thousands of writers get through the writing process of their beloved stories, ranging from fiction to nonfiction to fanfiction!

This year, my goal is to finish a Harry Potter fanfiction story I started years and years ago called The Gap Between Now & Forever. I managed to get through half the story back in 2012 and complete the 50k word count challenge, but not finish the story itself. In 2013, I attempted to start a different story and barely put a dent in it. Here’s to hoping I can get through my word count this year!

If you will be participating in NaNoWriMo this year, drop me a link to your profile so I can add you as a buddy and we can commiserate together. It’s always nice to have someone you can turn to for ideas, advice and keeping you on track! If you’re out for ideas, be sure to check out the forums to get in touch with the wonderful community for feedback and more!

Good luck, fellow Wrimos! LET THE WRITING BEGIN!
