And while I used to hate this month, it has become more fun over the past few years as I discovered NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month and its jumpier cousin, NaBloPoMo – National Blog Post Month. For the month of November, people around the world will be scribbling furiously on their note pads and laptops, finally given the push they need to write their novel or incentive to get more active in the blogosphere.
I did NaNo one year and got about 1/4 of the way through a novel and for the past several years, I have done NaBloPo. It seems like writers are more outgoing during this month, when posts are flying around and people are commenting and joking about them. More jokes, more stories, more ideas that make you go, “Maybe…” November has become a surprising month of fun.
Are you doing either of these? Let me know in the comments.
