Nice to Meet You, NaNoWriMo

This is my first year participating in NaNoWriMo although I've known about it for a few years now.  I thought it would be great to challenge myself and actually try to finish a story I start.  

If you don't know what it is, (which I am seriously doubting, because it seems that many bloggers are participating as well) NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month.  You're supposed to write 50,000 words in the span of November.  Today is the 2nd day and so far I have my plot figured out, the title good to go, and only 846 words when I should have 3334 by the end of today.

I'm not going to let the number discourage me because I'm the girl that carried around a 250 (500, if you count both sides) paged- written, not typed- fan fiction with me for a few years in high school.  If you were wondering, I never finished it.

I'm really liking what I've come up with and I'm feeling that I can really do this.  Who knows, maybe something great will come of it.

If you're participating as well, I'd love if you added me to your list of 
writing buddies on the site.
My username is ohaiitschey.

Good luck, writers!


  1. I've gotten a published book out of NaNo so far, so I'm giving it a shot this year. I may have to quit, but there's fun in giving it a go. If I don't get to you first, I'm xaymacagirl on there.

  2. I just added you (I'm onlyminordetails). Yay for more NaNo friends! :)
