10 Reasons You Should Do NaNoWriMo

Find it HERE.

But, if you're too lazy to click, here are the 10 Reasons Why You Should Write 50,000 Words in November 2013.

1. Because you get this deep down feeling in your bones after you read an amazing story; a need to drop everything right then and write something, too.

2. You’re afraid to try.

3. You have an idea.

4. Everyone agrees that November is a totally boring month; worse than August. Mostly, there is absolutely nothing of worth happening.

5. You love writers.

6. Do you hate pep?

7. If you are in the Southern Hemisphere, and are hoping to avoid sunburn and the possibility of skin cancer, let me introduce you to the indoor sport we call NaNoWriMo! 

If you are in the Northern Hemisphere, and hoping to avoid snow, rain, general chilliness, haaave you met NaNo?

8. There are people out there who will say, “NaNoWriMo is a waste of your time.”

9. Because you have a story worth telling.

10. You love to write.

Nanowrimo stands for National Novel Writing Month. Its website is found HERE.

If you're too lazy to actually register and poke around the website, you could just commit to writing 50,000 words in November. But, trust me, I did this last year, and it's much, much harder than it sounds. 

If anything, you get to input your words into your personal profile in the website and see the little bar thingie go nearer to the 50,000 word mark. Trust me, on some days, that's the only thing you can look forward to.

So why write? Because sometimes writing is its own reason for writing.

And, no worries, you can write whatever you want. Some people are called Nanowrimo Rebels and they don't write a novel, they write a collection of short stories or some other literary form instead.

Are you in? See you there!
