NaNoWriMo 2017 Kicks Off

Words in the Dark: Post 1 of 2017

It’s that time of year again: dark, snowy November days when the international NaNoWriMo community comes together for another annual writing marathon.

First, some definitions from the Wikiwrimo pages (public)

And one more thing

What is my project this year?

For a series of reasons, I cannot commit to a 50K-word marathon this year, nor to the revision of books in progress. However, since NaNo has been a big part of my life over the years, I am still taking part as a NaNo Buddy to several writing friends. Words in the Dark (Nov. 2017) posts will include their adventures or any progress I happen to make.

Are you taking part in NaNoWriMo? What is your project this year? I would love to hear from you in the comments.

Happy writing!
