So I want to talk about NaNoWriMo for a second. NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is a project where a bunch of crazy crazy writers try to write a 50,000 word story in a month (this works out to just under 2000 words a day).
Now the thing is I actually really enjoy writing and would kind of like to take part one year. But I have literally no desire to write a story. You know that saying “everyone has a story in them” well I don’t. I literally have no stories in me to tell. I think it’s because I read so much that I can’t find anything original to write.
But I’m totally okay with that. I’ve written short stories in the past for school and what I have found is that I much prefer writing non-fiction. This thing I do here on this blog, I like this and I want to do more.
So no I am not doing NaNoWriMo this year. No I am not doing blog every day in November. Don’t even try and convince me to do it because I won’t. But I do want to try writing 50,000 words. I want to improve my writing and try writing longer posts. So over the next year I am going to try and write fifty 1000+ word posts.
And I know that literally everywhere you go you’ll find people saying don’t write long blog posts because people never read them. Well I’ve found that the longest post on this blog is also my most viewed so those people can all shut up. Anyway, I’m writing to write, not so people will read it. So yeah….
I should work on my endings.
