Several years ago I started participating in the annual National Novel Writing Month held every November since 1999. Unfortunately, I've only completed one year, but the others that I signed up for, I made very good progress toward new writing projects.
For many of us, November isn't the best time of year to try such a challenge. But, I'm interested in getting back into fiction after several years away from it and I think this is a good way to get back into the game.
I'm leaving my profile link to NaNoWriMo here if you would like to join me and also you can keep up with my weekly progress on this site as well.
I would love to hear whether you signed up or not, and how you are doing along the way. Quite a number of us on BellaOnline are giving the challenge a try this year - I hope you join in on the fun.
