I am a Nano Newbie...

So I recently decided to really give writing a try. It's something I have always wanted to do, and now this is the real attempt to actually write and finish a novel. This blog is my way of holding myself accountable and reaching out to other writers in similar situations or writers who have been doing this for years.

How am I starting off this new writing journey? I signed up for National Novel Writing Month. And I'm actually going to write 1,667 words a day for 30 days. Sounds a bit ambitious, huh? But I think it will give me an idea of how much I really want this dream and how much I can achieve when I see writing as a challenge (I am very competitive). Most of all, I want to have fun with it. I hear that's important when doing Nano. 

How many of you out there are doing Nano for the first time? We'll be here to explore this new territory together. I'll be sharing how my first Nano attempt goes: unexpected challenges and triumphs. I want to hear about yours as well.

How many of you are doing it for the second, third, or umpteenth time? That's great! I am jealous. Maybe you can offer us newbies some advice?

As always, happy writing. :)
