I am definitely not a fan of autumn. In fact, I hate it with a passion! All the rain and the wind and the lack of daylight. The only thing that keeps me alive right now is my participation in this year’s NaNoWriMo – the National Novel Writing Month. You write every day, starting with November 1st, for 30 days until you have ideally reached 50.000+ words and written your own little novel. You can write whatever you want and you don’t have to publish it. Some days are easy on other days I really struggle but it feels good when you have reached the day’s word count at the end! It’s a little reward every day and I can escape into a different world, create it with just my words. For some this is a mindfulness project, others actually write a real novel. I do it to stay focused on one project for a month. Sometimes I succeed, some years I don’t make it. In 2017 I will definitely finish my NaNoWriMo!
9 days to go! 15.000 words still to write.
