November 11, 2006

Ever heard that November is the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)? I hadn’t until Bill found it for me. He stumbled across it on one of his blogs and sent it to me knowing I would be interested.

So what it is? It’s a program for those who who have always wanted to write but never found the time. The goal is to write 50,000 words by midnight on November 30. The focus is on quantity, not quality, so that you actually write that novel.

I took a writing class a couple of years ago and was told that in order to be a writer, you have to write. Well I’ve spent a long time not writing, and I could probably come up with a million reasons not to participate in NaNoWriMo (new job at it’s busiest time, family coming for Thanksgiving, house projects, etc.) but I’m giving it a go.

Happy writing.

About Me

Welcome to my spot on the web where I talk about needlework, crafts, and [many] other random things.

A few tidbits about me: I met my husband in college, flirting over tuba letters in the Penn Band. Our dog, CJ, and our cat, Sabrina, round out our family. I'm a sewist, knitter and needlepointer, and an occasional scrapbooker. I love organizing, reading, making jewelry, and hiking. A Chicago girl at heart, I am an avid follower the Cubs, Bears, and Blackhawks.

You can email me at mlynapier [at] pobox [dot] com. Thank you for stopping by!

My Etsy Shop

A place for me to sell my handmade goods. My style? It's fun and funky with a hint of romance.
