NaNoWriMo: National Novel Writing Month
Every November, the writing community at large puts on a big, virtual as well as in-person event (all over the world.) The goal is to write a novel, at least 50,000 words, during the 30 days of November. People do it for fun, people do it seriously, people do it to prompt their creativity, and others still do it for professional work. The overall point being, write. Write whatever, for any reason. Just take part in the ancient, sacred action of story telling.
When I was younger I always thought of myself as a writer—nothing ever came of it, but that identity has remained a part of me always. And every November I start to feel the creative urge with this global creative surge towards creating.
Will it happen this year???
Visions of haikus dancing through my head…
Well, I can say I’ve printed out and am filling out the Heart Breathings Plot Your Novel and Preptober 2023 workbooks. I’m still in the plotting and planning and prestige phase. But I’m setting up a routine. I have my writing buddy, I have my reward stickers 😂 I can do this hard thing.
And so can you! Radically create!! Create with all your life force, for that is your true purpose,m. Create art, create care, create solutions, create peace, create safety, create love.
