It's NaNoWriMo Time Again!

NaNoWriMo is less than a week away! What's NaNoWriMo, you ask? It stands for National Novel Writing Month, which is a world-wide event that takes place every November where folks attempt to write a 50,000 word novel in a month.

I'm participating again this year (see this post for more information on what I did last year) and have been busy this week with my novel planning. It's going to be a challenge with my brother's wedding this month but I think I can do it. It helps that we don't have any plans for Thanksgiving so I can stay home and write!

If you're one of those people who has always wanted to write a novel but never got around to it, NaNoWriMo might be for you! Before NaNo last year I had never finished writing a short story, much less a whole book. Since then I have started writing more, including two short stories (one of which I entered in a contest and is posted here). I am very excited about my story this year and can't wait to start writing!

If you decide to attempt NaNoWriMo, look me up on the NaNo website so we can be writing buddies! My username there is Clockwise.

Happy writing!

P.S. I try not to make excuses for not posting new projects, but the reason I haven't had anything new for months is that I have been working on a very big project: an animated short film! Though I've been working on it since May I am only about halfway through and now because of NaNo it is getting pushed to the back burner. I hope to get it finished before the end of the year but that might be wishful thinking. Here's a teaser trailer I made to show to my friends who are the "actors" in the film (I felt bad about making them wait so long to see the finished product!).

This is muna from pakistan. I wanted to say thank you for the amazing nativity mary and baby jesus pattern, i have made 4 for my mom and sisters this year. was wondering if you are still planning to make a new one each christmas, and if you have already come up with the pattern for the new one.

Hi muna! I hope to come up with a new nativity figure this year (probably Joseph) but I have not started to work on it yet so I do not have a pattern. I will probably not get to work on it until December which means that I won't get the new pattern up until after Christmas. I wish I could have it up faster but with NaNoWriMo I am very busy right now so it's going to have to wait. :(

I'm so glad to hear that you have made some nativity figures from my other pattern, thank you! :)
