This month is a busy month for lots of writers with NaNoWriMo which, for those of you non-writer people, stands for National Novel Writing Month. The idea behind it is a writer spends every spare second of their time writing their novel, trying to hit a daily word count each day, or an overall target for the month. As writers, we don’t always spend our time just writing. If only we could! We spend a lot of our time reviewing other people’s work in critique forums or with beta readers. A large majority of writers learn their craft this way like myself. We also have to revise and edit our own stuff after getting reviews. This can be very time consuming. Networking is also a big part of a writer’s life. There is such a supportive network of writers out there in cyberspace, we all support each other and help with such a challenging quest of becoming published authors.
NaNoWriMo isn’t for everyone. I’ve never done it myself as I’ve always found it a bit too intense. We are all different, and I can’t write that way, personally. But I do wish all those other writers out there all the luck in the world! I take my hat off to anyone who is participating this year. And if that’s you, I just have one thing to say…What are you doing here reading my blog? You should be writing! :D
