As you may have read on my previous post I am taking part in NaNoWriMo, which stands for National Novel Writing Month. I m going to be writing 50,000 words during November, I did it last year and had so much fun, so I'm making time to do it again this year.
I know that a lot of my readers won't have the energy to write 50,000 words, but that's ok instead of normal NaNo I want to extend an invitation - let's have a go at writing 5,000 words in a month - that's a short-ish story; but is definitely do-able. It works out at 167 words a day, which really isn't much, in fact it's less than this blog post. If we all write a story then I will put them together into a free e-book you can distribute to your family and friends - it would make a great Christmas/Non-holiday specific gift and you get the pleasure in calling yourself a published author.
It's going to be lots of fun and a great way to get creative and tell some stories. Leave me a comment to let me know if you fancy having a go or drop me an email.
Stories can be about anything you fancy; but a few guidelines and rules...
