In my circle of friends and among my colleagues, nobody knows what NaNoWriMo is, not even when I tell them that it is National Novel Writing Month. A few answered with a disinterested,


They probably think that it is the same kind of thing as National Carrot Cake Day (2/3), International Kissing Day (7/6) or National Bologna Day (10/24), but it’s not! NaNoWriMo is in a whole other league! In addition, it’s an entire month.

Really, I have no right to feel so strongly about NaNoWriMo. I only discovered it last year and only achieved a word count of around 4,600 words. Not exactly impressive. I am however starting over this year. I have a brand new idea – or rather, I don’t have an idea, I just starting writing, but I like where it is going so far. It’s Day 1 and I have 1700 words.

To my fellow NaNoWriMo writers: Believe! Not only can we rack up the word count, we can also write something outstanding and original.
