NaNoWriMo – Ready to Go!

Participant-2014-Web-Banner I heard talking about NaNoWriMo the first time in 2005. I was a member of a Lord of the Rings community, and inside that community, I was part of the Storytellers Guild. Teathowen was the mistress of the guild and come October, she started talking about NaNo, because she was already a veteran at the time. I had never heard about it before, but the idea of the challenge simply blew me away. I even had the project for it, La chiave di vetro, a YA fantasy set in Venice which I had outlined at the time, but not written. So I just jumped onto it. La chiave di vetro is the only NaNo project I wrote in Italian, I’ve always written in English afterward. And although I did win NaNo, I’ve never finished the novel, though I still like the project enough that one day maybe… This year, because I have a blog, I want to try and do two challenges: 130k words of polishing (looks unlikelier by the minute) and post everyday on my blog as per this meme I’ve found. Anybody wants to join in? So, am I ready for this year’s NaNo? Well, it starts tomorrow. I’d better be.
