No Shave November/NaNoWriMo

November 1, 2012

Do you all know what today is? It’s November 1st which means today is the start of… (drum roll please) National Novel Writing Month!! Wooo. And the crowd goes wild!

Since most of you cool people out there have no idea what that is, NaNoWriMo is a campaign/group that gets novelists from all over the country to sit down and just write. The goal is to write an entire novel in one month. ONE MONTH. And by entire novel I mean a whopping 50,000 word novel.  

On top of school, work, friends, keeping up with The Office, and running this blog I will be writing a novel, and I am oh so excited about. Who knows if I will even finish but regardless, I might as well give it a shot.  

Also I would just like to thank everyone who reads my blog. A lot of times what I write can sound like a personal diary entry and sometimes what I write should be on the front page of the New York Times (I wish) but regardless I still have readers every day. So thank you for that. I would still write even if not a single soul read it, but I take comfort in the fact that some people truly do enjoy reading what I have to say. If you are one of those people then pass this blog along to your friends! And even if you hate it, still pass it along to your friends!

I did indeed start writing last night so I share with you for your reading pleasure my first 51 words:

It was a dark windy night on the coast. Rain was impending and the thunder struck the house every minute. Now is the time to say someone is sad, someone’s family member died, or some girl’s boyfriend broke up with her; but on the contrary, it was a wonderful night indeed.

Also, happy No Shave November
