The sweat begins its descent from the agitated expression that has formed upon my face. The day’s inch closer and closer, haunting me. The shadows cast and holding me within in its cover. The return of NaNoWriMo.
Yet again, after a year of facing the barren desire to embark upon the journey that many writers have now undertaken, I come once again to the door of this moment. For those who do not know, Nanowrimo stands for the national writing month. It was created to help inspire and encourage writers to write about 50, 000 + words within the month and create their novels. The main point is just to write, devoid of mistakes, editing and etc. You write a certain amount of words per day and can even come together with other writers to just write.
Last year, I was so busy with work and life that I didn’t have a chance to properly participate in it. This year, I have taken it upon myself to properly engage and come together with other writers. Like I have stated in my previous posts, I have become my own obstacle course, I refuse to let my passion diminish. Writing is now going to be considered my second full-time job because ultimately it truly is something I wish to do till I die. I will get better in this craft and I have even become encouraged to once again go back to school, this time to maybe pursue something in English, creative writer and etc. I want to continue to grow as a writer, by reading, engaging with others, and learning every chance I get.
To those who have never participated in NaNoWriMo before, I strongly recommend and it is an experience that will help you grow as a writer. I am not getting paid to promote the whole system, site and etc (hahaha). What I am promoting is to continue following your dreams, as I am.
