You’ve survived October! Time to put away the costume and candy and bring out the laptop and a cozy cup of tea. Today is the start of NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. If you’ve ever thought about writing a book, now is the time to do it. They encourage you to write a bit every day, and before you know it, you may have a novel! Sign up at and you can support each other (and see how many words you’ve written) throughout the month.

Need some encouragement to get you through it? Check out this sweet music video Kristina Horner did last year (with a cameo by me!):

I unfortunately won’t be participating this year–I’m in the middle of a few awesome Geeky Hostess-related projects. But I know many of you will be! Leave a comment if you’re participating, you may just find someone awesome to help support you.


  1. I’m participating in NaNoWriMo this year. I’m just over 500 words, my goal for today is 2000 words but it’s been a slow start.

  2. The day is young! Sounds like you’re off to a good start to me!

  3. I somehow managed to write 10k on the first day. Now it’s 1am in my timezone and I’m trying to get some sleep… And then write another 10k, maybe 😉

  4. Holy cow! Way to go!

  5. I am trying to write for nanowrimo. It’s hell…
