100 Word Challenge: Novel

hawk in flight

I started an adventure yesterday, something I haven’t attempted in four years… I didn’t realize it had been that long until I typed that out.

Anyway… I’m making my best attempt at NaNoWriMo. For the uninitiated, the acronym stands for: National Novel Writing Month.

It’s this crazy idea to write 50,000 words during the whole month of November. That breaks down to 50,000 – a five with four zeros – in just 30 days – that’s a smidge more than four weeks. Let’s break that down further to an average daily written word count of about 1,667. Totally doable, right?

All the while, I must also keep up with this blog, and the three writing prompts I moderate. Oh, yeah… I’ve traded one prompt (Studio30 Plus) for another, Two Word Tuesday at Our Write Side. Check it out sometime.

I digress.

The last time I took a stab at NaNoWriMo was in 2012. I made it happen then, so I am hopeful I can do it again. I even have an idea and have done some background work. That always helps.

Wish me luck. I’ll probably mention it again before the end of November. For all my fellow NaNoers, good luck and keep writing. I’ll be right there with you.

“There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.” W. Somerset Maugham

This week’s word is:


What to do:
Using “novel” for inspiration, write 100 Words – 100 exactly – no more, no less. You can either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of your 100, or it can be implied. Include a link in your post back here, and add your story to the Mister Linky list. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave your submission in the comment section, or as a Facebook status post. Remember to keep spreading the love with supportive comments for your fellow Wordsters.
