I read 10 books this month, and it was definitely a struggle to keep my reading speed while doing NaNoWriMo. I’m just glad I managed to reach 10 with the help of a few novellas. Plus, now I’ve written my own book. That should count for something!Continue reading
Hello friends! It’s November 1st, which means that it’s time for NaNoWriMo!!
In case you don’t know– NaNoWriMo (or NaNo because typing is hard) is National Novel Writing Month. During NaNoWriMo, thousands of writers take the challenge to try and write a 50k word novel during the month of November.
That means around 1,667 words per day.
If you want to learn more about NaNo and what it’s like to participate, I recommend checking out their website: nanowrimo.org. It’s really informative and you can see all the amazing reasons to become a Wrimo and jump in on this journey. There’s no way I could sit here and explain all the awesome parts of NaNo without forgetting something, so I’ll let them do the work.
As you can probably guess, I’ll be partaking in NaNoWiMo this year. It will be my 6th year. I’ve also done NaNo ’11, ’12, ’13,(I skipped ’14 because I had pneumonia) ’15, (I skipped ’16 because of college) and ’17. I won the last 3 years I’ve competed, so hopefully this year I’ll continue that streak. (Add me as a friend!)
But I don’t want to focus on me– I’ll save that for another post. Today, I wanted to talk about starting a novel.
Happy Halloween!!!! On this amazing day, I want to talk about what I’ll be reading next month because nothing is more terrifying than commitment.
I read 15 books last month, so I feel pretty proud. Admittedly, six were rereads, but I’ll explain more why I count those in my October Wrap Up.
I chose 4 books for November, and I’m almost done with one of them already! Let’s hope if I can keep up my reading streak this month! Since NaNoWriMo will be happening, I doubt it. Also, if you don’t know what NaNoWriMo is, or want to know my methods, make sure you follow my blog because I’ll be posting all during this hellish yet amazing month!
Unfortuntately, Hallo-month is almost over, but that means it’s time for a bunch of November book releases! Also, I apologize in advance for typos. I’m writing this while I have a fever, I’m in such a sleep-deprived daze right now it’s a miracle that I remember how to type.
