Happy November everyone! There’s only 61 days left of 2016, can you believe it?! I can’t. Jeeze how time has flown by. However, it’s November 1st, the start of Nanowrimo 2016.
For those who don’t know what Nanowrimo is, its for people who want to write a novel quickly. In thirty days, you can write a 50,000 page novel as long as you’re diligent enough. If you sign up though the website, you’ll have resources and people there to help you though your writers block an any other obstacles you come across. They’re also there to cheer you on and bounce ideas off of.
I have to admit though, for me this may be a different experience than most have. I’m doing Nanowrimo because I’ve never done it before and am using it as a therapy session. Nanowrimo is something that I’ve always wanted to do, yet the people in my life never were supportive of it. That’s why I’m choosing to do it now while I’ve been making positive changes in my life.
Plus, I’m going to be writing about my experiences in the past year and a half which has lead me to this point in my life. I’ve been battling depression and anxiety for so long and they increased heavily in the past year, up until a month or two ago. I’m finally willing to let everything go, and will do it in the form of writing. I mean, I do love writing.
Either way, it’s going to be a struggle. I’m going to need all the support I can get! Wish me luck!
