Dearest November,

Sunday, November 1, 2009

I was amidst candy eating and picture editing at around 1 in the morning when I realized it was November 1st. Now not only did that signify that the end of the wonderful month of October had come to an end, it also meant that one of the craziest, most insane, most brilliant events was on the brink of unfolding: National Novel Writing Month. For those of you who are unaware of what NaNoWriMo is, I will quickly summarize that it is an event that takes place solely in the month of November where an individual writes a 50,000+ word novel in thirty days. The process is both joyful and painful. Watching your novel unfold at such a quick pace is exhilarating but when you hit the bumps of writer's block, joy and exhilaration are the furthest thing from your mind. I dunno how exactly but last year I somehow completed the task and won. I was one of only three people who were able to finish out of the handful that participated in my High School so this year should be a piece of cake, right? Wrong. So, so wrong. Because I was sick for the past week, I had absolutely no time to plan out anything. I woke up this morning with no plot, no character(s), absolutely nothing in mind. Thankfully I have more direction now that the day is almost over but I have only managed to write a few paragraphs. With my project 365 in full swing, school, blogging, the photo swap and the occasional photo shoot that I do as a part-time job, I can only imagine completing this year's quest to write a 50,000 word novel. But I am going to do it. No matter how many times I rant, I whine or I cry. I'm just going to need a lot of motivation and cheering on. Trust me, this month is going to be brutal.
If any of you are interested or are participating let me know so that I can support you. There is no fee to join. Simply go to the website and make an account where you can read the official rules and update your word count. The rest is all optional. (Another cool thing that I don't want to forget to mention is that you get "pep talks" or emails that different NaNoWriMo authors send so that you won't get discouraged throughout the process. There is a ton of cool features so make sure to check it out.)
I will have a small app that will be displaying my word count on my sidebar. Whenever I post, I will display the little fellow below along with my current writing mood.

Now before I wave a full-hearted hello to November, here are some of yesterday's photos. I was Little Red Riding Hood and I must say that I had a wonderful time in my long red cape. I'm very proud to say that my grandma constructed such a lovely outfit.

Thank you so much for your kind words and well wishes! You are such a dear!

Good luck with the 50,000 words! What an incredible challenge for yourself...I cannot even imagine! You will most definitely have to share some of your writing with us, especially since you are the reining champ; that is incredible! :)
