Public Service Announcement: I, Lauren, have decided to take on the arduous (and quite frankly insane) challenge of NaNoWriMo 2017!
NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month, takes place in the month of November every year. Its many, many participants all challenge themselves to write a 50,000-word novel in thirty days.
Now I am under no illusions as to how impossibly difficult this challenge will be, or that I am highly unlikely to make the 50,000-word target. Firstly, I am a full-time university student with a many hours a week job on top. Second, I am a music student, meaning that much of my ‘free time’ is spent in a practice room. Third, I also have a 2,500-word history essay due at the beginning of December.
But despite my ridiculously hectic schedule I am determined to give NaNoWriMo a whack, because a)I may be slightly insane and b) I have wanted to take part in NaNoWriMo since the day I discovered it, so why not now?
So buckle up, settle down, and wish me luck, because life is about to get coo-coo-ca-choo crazy!
(But in a very good way.)
Side Note: It’s nearly Christmas!!
