Yes, it’s true. I am participating in NaNoWriMo for the second year. I am beyond words excited.
See, last year it was a thrilling experience. I blogged about it – back when I think I had about 3 followers (posts here, here, here, and here). I loved it. The excitement. The challenge. The pride I felt when I completed a 50,007 word novel in only 30 days.
What an accomplishment!
This year? I’m even more excited. Why? Because I have so many more writing buddies! Between Twitter, blogging, and of course the Write on Edge group, I’ve amassed quite the support team.
One of the things that stands out the most from last year’s experience, was the dialogue between myself and Brianna. We were on Google-Chat almost every day offering encouragement, bouncing ideas off each other, coaxing each other through the difficult times. It was fantastic.
So this year it’ll be even more run, right? Brianna will still be with me (awesome!), but I’ll also have Alyssa, Cam, Lyn, and a whole mess of other people!
I’m sponsoring a contest put on by WriMos FTW.
I know, right???
Lyn is letting me offer a complete manuscript critique as the second place prize in her contest.
It opens November 2nd, so stay tuned.
And if you’re participating this year?

I freaking love it!
