NaNoWriMo Begins! (and why I am a NaNoWriMo Rebel this year)

NaNoWriMo begins today! For those who don’t know, the full name of this annual event is called National Novel Writing Month. There are many variations possible for those who want to use this community writing challenge in other ways (I’ll be talking more about this later in this post), but . . .


Happy Caps Lock Day! And yes, it is a real thing. Apparently (I’m still looking for a reliable source to verify, since the CapsLockDay domain seems to have been taken over by someone else, be warned), software developer Derek Arnold created Caps Lock Day to poke fun at “typographical conventions.” . . .

Happy New Year! Chance for a fresh start….

Happy New Year, all! Not making any New Year’s Resolutions. Things went VERY wonky last year, but I’m heading into this fresh, shiny new year with cautious optimism. How about you?

For those who are doing NaNoWriMo this year (and for those who aren’t)

If you are doing NaNoWriMo this year, good luck! Though chances are good you don’t have the time to read this blog post.  If you attempted NaNoWriMo and gave up partway through, or avoided doing it at all because you knew you wouldn’t have the time, don’t abandon all hope! . . .
