NaNoWriMo starts today, so I might not be posting much this month.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with NaNoWriMo, it is a yearly writing challenge to write the first draft of a 50,000 word novel in one month. It takes place every November. I haven’t participated in a number of years, but I would like to give it another shot. I’m not sure if I will have time to write 50,000 words, in addition to classes and work, but I will sure try!
