I’ve been trying to find anyone at all that is participating this year from my part of the world and it looks like nobody is that I could find. There used to be a writers club that did a southern hemisphere version of NANOWRIMO but that is now defunct. That is sad – particularly for writers like me who want to participate officially but can’t.
As you may know, I am busy working on my next short story (won’t say Novel but it will more than likely be at least 20,000 words) and I was hoping to use that for NANOWRIMO as I haven’t officially started writing it out yet so technically, I could.
I am thinking that I’ll give it a go anyway and just celebrate it on a personal level and if I finish it by the end of November, I will pat myself on the back and be happy with a new accomplishment!
I’ve been thinking of posting my writing elsewhere like Booksie – I stopped by to check out the community but I am pretty shy (it took me years to publish my writing no joke) and while I do want more people interested in what I write, I want it to be for the right type of readers – does that make sense?
Anyway, I’ve started brainstorming and I’ll be starting the first draft tomorrow as it is the 1st in my country! I am so excited for this! I hope my readers will all be celebrating somehow by writing something, even if its something small! Please feel free to leave me a comment if you’d like to share your writing or your creative projects as I am always keen to connect with other writers!
Have a GREAT Halloween and I’ll be updating my next post with the next part of my current short story “Untitled Short Story #1” – also, I think I may have a name for this story (another exciting reveal!) but I’m still thinking on it and I’ll publish it when I’ve made a final decision 🙂
Stay safe out there and keep writing and I’ll see you all in the next post!
