Howdy do, WordPressers! As many of you already know, the day you’ve been planning for has come. It’s a day you both love and dread.
It’s called NaNoWriMo and it’s NOT a new type of rhinoceros. It’s a month-long writers’ holiday–National Novel Writing Month. NaNoWriMo lasts all November, and while I’m sure you’ve been plotting and planning for your novel for months now, I tend to be too overwhelmed with school to actually write an entire novel in a month.
So, instead I aim to write a little something every day–a paragraph in the book I’m working on, a blog post, or an article to send to a magazine. (#freelance)
Speaking of freelancing, I received my first rejection letter yesterday–Halloween. I wasn’t really expecting to get published, as this was the first article I’d ever submitted to a magazine. Ironically, the letter was dated October 26, which is my birthday.
Do you have a great freelance rejection/submission story? Leave me a comment and tell me about it.
What are you going to do for NaNoWriMo? What’s your plan? Are you going to write a whole novel? You know what to do. Leave me a comment. Let’s talk about it.
