Last year, G1 and I joined Nanowrimo together – he joined the Young Writer’s Program and I joined the full Nanowrimo program. Neither of us made it. My excuse was that I was distracted by the non-fiction book I was working on. G1, admittedly, wasn’t particularly committed to the cause. While he liked the idea of being a writer, he wasn’t prepared to suffer the pain of being one.
This year, G1 started a story writing blog and I’ve noticed that he has been writing to it quite consistently. Encouraged by his teacher at school and his friends who want to be featured in his stories, he seems to have found his mojo for writing. So I nudged him again about Nanowrimo and he agreed. He gave himself a more worthy target this year – the standard 30000 word limit set by the Young Writer’s Program. As of today, he’s some 6000 words in and counting – woohoo!
To be sure that I can keep up with the harsh demands of Nanowrimo, I am taking a hiatus from all other writing projects. It may get a little quiet around here for the month of November. Hopefully that will be because we’re all busy writing our Nanowrimo novels…
I only write when I am inspired. Fortunately I am inspired at 9 o’clock every morning.
