Thursday 13 - NaNoWriMo

Thursday Thirteen #80

13 Reasons I Participate in NaNoWriMo

Well it is November! And it is NaNoWriMo time. For you thaht don't know National Novel Writing Month is a mad dash to write 50,000 words in thirty days. Thousands of aspiring writers worldwide take on the challenge. Some go on to publish their work (after a massive edit). So here are 13 reasons I participate every year.
  1. Everyone has a great novel in them. I just have to work through the thirty or forty crappy ones to get to it
  2. I want a character to survive the Game of Thrones
  3. I want to document the location of every Starbucks and Panera Bread in NE Ohio
  4. I plot the messy deaths of real people who annoy me and carry them out through my characters
  5. How hard can it be? look at that Twilight stuff
  6. In my literary world you can be married to Condolizza Rice AND Halle Berry. In fact you can combine them into one person.
  7. Someone has to write "The New Adventures of Harry Potter"
  8. I thought of another dozen shades of grey
  9. I can make teenage vampires and werewolves spontaneously combust
  10. I can justify the purchase of a new laptop for my art
  11. I get to write-in with real people whom I only see once a year
  12. It is more fun to rewrite history than it is to study it
  13. I think I can score a big hit with "The Hunger Games: More Fiber"
NaNoWriMo is a wonderful exercise in literary abandon. Nad nothing beats the feeling of reaching that 50K word goal before November 30th.

If you write that Hunger Games sequel, I'll absolutely read it.

And the purchase of a laptop is almost always justifiable.

Happy TT!

Ha! I love number one! I believe that and number two is my wish, too. Can't just one character in Game of Thrones have a happy couple of months even? And winter hasn't even arrived yet.
