NaNoWriMo 2015

It's Halloween! The weather is getting colder as the days get shorter. Tomorrow (only hours from now) starts the annual NaNoWriMo challenge. National Novel Writing Month happens every November.

The challenge is to write a first draft of a story. 50,000 words within the month of November! This year my project is the long awaited sequel to my YA Sci-Fi/Paranormal, To Eris - Human (Payton Chronicles 1)

Facts taken from the official NaNoWriMo site:

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) believes stories matter. The event began in 1999, and in 2005, National Novel Writing Month became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
NaNoWriMo’s programs now include National Novel Writing Month in November, Camp NaNoWriMothe Young Writers ProgramCome Write In, and the “Now What?” Months.
In 2014:
  • 325,142 participants, including 81,311 students and educators in the Young Writers Program, started the month as auto mechanics, out-of-work actors, and middle school English teachers. They walked away novelists.
  • 849 libraries, bookstores, and community centers opened their doors to novelists through the Come Write In program.
  • 55,774 Campers tackled a writing project—novel or not—at Camp NaNoWriMo.
