NaNoWriMo Is Almost Here … Are You Ready?

Last year I wrote about NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month – and declared that I had joined up and gotten started. By ‘getting started’ I meant having a nugget of an idea and creating empty files on my iPad to work with. And … that was about as far as I got. I fiddled a bit, but never uploaded anything or made any significant progress. Sadly that was how many of my plans went last year.

But this year has been very different – I have lost 90 pounds, fallen in love with running, I’ve completed a half- and full marathon, and I’ve reclaimed much of my guitar-playing chops. I have already exceeded what I had realistically hoped to accomplish for personal goals this year – but I left ‘write a book’ on the list and set myself the goal of actually participating in NaNoWriMo this year. Who knows what will happen … but it is worth trying!

What about you? Have you been looking for that push to get writing? If so, perhaps this is it – it starts next Thursday November 1st and goes throughout November.

Head to NaNoWriMo to get started!

Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
