Just a few thoughts about November and my various NaNoWriMo experiences.
When I lived in France, November was a special month for me.
November was the literary season with awards and prizes.
November was the arrival of the Beaujolais Nouveau, a young wine that you don’t keep in your cellar but drink in the weeks that follow.
November was also my birthday month.
When I moved to the United States I adapted and adopted new celebrations and traditions.
I was happy that Thanksgiving happened to be in November.
Many stores now carry also the French Beaujolais Nouveau.
And I could participate to the infamous NaNoWriMo.
I have mixed feelings about this crazy race.
- Seriously, 50 000 words sound a lot.
- Honestly, who writes every day?
- Really, the idea of a new draft is tempting.
- Definitely, pressure isn’t a bad thing for writers.
So, am I doing NaNoWriMo 2014?
I am and I am not.
I started a new YA story.
