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.

Edie,
I'm thinking about it. As I do every year before chickening out.

Yup NaNoWriMo is about learning skills! The best goals are SMART -

Specific
Measurable
Attainable
Relevant
Time-bound

So that's why NaNoWriMo is great. You need a deadline. You need something specific to try for. It's fine if you don't quite make it - what you're doing is building up your skill set!

Is anybody else working on a mystery novel for NaNoWriMo? Let us know!
