A Month of Literary Abandon… MommaBean throws down the gauntlet!

It’s that time of year again… volumes of coffee, reams of rambling, and confusing characters.  That’s right, it’s time to prepare for National Novel Writing Month!  On November 1, crazed WriMos worldwide will bring to life previously unknown characters and unleash them on the world.  If you’ve got an evil villain, a beautiful princess, or anything in between hiding inside, this is your chance to let them out!

For everyone who’s ever said, “I could write a novel,” now’s your chance to put your money where your mouth is… and it won’t cost you a cent.  Join the legions (or at least tens) of other Jordanians who’ll be putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboards) to bring their stories to life.  Join in this movement that’s sweeping the world.  Hundreds of thousands of literati (okay, maybe just literates) will be joining in the fun this year.

Not sure you can do it, The Office of Letters and Light offers a variety of online encouragement tools (and occasionally a kick-in-the-pants) to help you make it through.  So, join us for 30 days of literary abandon and turn yourself over to the crazed word-fest that is NaNoWriMo (http://www.nanowrimo.org/).   Oh, and MommaBean will be participating for the second year in a row.  Last year, I came in at just over 52,000 words.  Think you can do better?  Scared to try?  Join us and put your mettle to the test…  We’ll be waiting for you!

Happy Word Counts!

  1. Hi,
    I was searching for posts about NaNoWriMo on WordPress, and yours came up. So here’s a friendly “good luck this year!” 🙂
    It’s going to be my third year, and I hope to clear the 50K again.

    • Thanks for your well wishes and good luck right back at you! I’m hoping for a second year of success. I hit 50,000 and the end of my novel right on time last year… talk about good planning (not mine, but someone must have been planning well or something, teehee).
