Have you heard of NaNoWriMo? Here's a link to be my writing buddy! I'm doing it this year, but I also have a short story to finish for an anthology I'm going to be in so I don't think I'll be hitting 50,000 words during the month of November. Why am I still doing it? It's really fun! It's a great community of writers! I still haven't gone to one in all my years doing NaNoWriMo but there are cool local "write ins" where you can go to a local shop and write with a bunch of other people. I should go to one someday. And even though I probably won't get to 50,000 words I'm still being spurred on to write more than I usually do. Did I mention it's fun? Seeing the meter fill up as you post your daily word count is so awesome!
Here's the info on the book I'm writing for NaNoWriMo this year:
