NaNoWriMo!

Hey guys, this is Abi here,
And I thought since NaNoWriMo is literally just round the corner, that I'd do a post about it!
So here it is!

NaNoWriMo

So I heard about NaNoWriMo (god that's difficult to type) just under a year ago, at the beginning of November of last year, (so I wouldn't have enough time to compete in it anyway, even if I did have a story), but even from then I knew it was something that I wanted to participate in. 

And now, it's a year later (it seems a long time ago, but in the same aspect, it also feels like 5 minutes ago) and November is just around the corner. 

AND I'M DOING NaNoWriMo!
(I just realised that I haven't clarified what NaNoWriMo stands for, for all you non-writers (even though this is a book blog), but NaNoWriMo means National Novel Writing Month). 
NaNoWriMo is when you try to write 50,000 words in 30 days. The point is to just write write write- even if what you are writing is pure bull. 

But the point of NaNoWriMo is to get motivated to write, or at least start it, even if your personal goal isn't to reach 50,000 (as for me, I'm not sure whether to attempt it or not, because I can't just write, and not care about how good the content is). 

So the story that I will be working on is one that is still in the works right now (I'm still working on the outline, but since it's half term this week, then I'm hoping to finish it by the end of the month). 
It's a YA Contemporary (:D when I tell people that they look at me all clueless), and it centres around three characters, who are called Izzy (short for Elizabeth), Elliot, and Nerve, with which you will be able to see all off their perspectives at some points in the book (but the main protagonist is Izzy). 
That is all I am able to divulge in terms of what my book is about at the moment, but I might share more in the future. 

So, that is my post for today! I am really looking forward to NaNoWriMo, and even though I know it'll be a sort of challenge I haven't attempted before, I hope to do well, even if I don't complete the 50,000 words, because the point for me is to get the kick up the ass that I need to start this book!
If any of you guys would also like to sign up, I'll put the link to sign up at the bottom of the post!
I hope you all have a wonderful day, and I will see you all on Friday!
Byeeee!
