National Novel Writing Month

National Novel Writing Month – Day One

Today is the first day of National Novel Writer’s Month. This is the time of the year when authors/writers, all over the world, sit down at their computers or laptops and write the novel that they have always wanted to write. The goal is to write 50,000 words by November 30th. At the end of the month you submit your work and receive a certificate along with awesome discount on writing software and some freebies.

This will be my third year participating. My first year I finished in 23 days which also resulting in me self-publishing my first novel “Head Stories” on Amazon. National Novel Writer’s Month gave me the push that I needed to step into my passion and go for what have been a lifetime dream for me.

As for today, I am off to a slow start. At one point I thought about not participating. However, somewhere I got the push that I needed to go for it. Here I sit-with my laptop, notebook, pens, and coffee.

“Writing isn’t a hobby. It’s a calling.”

This is my passion and my career. I am a writer! I can do this.
