NaNoWriMo 2011

I signed up for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) this year, again, despite the fact that I am 100% sure I won't meet the goal of 50,000 words as November for a teacher is a hectic time of year with conferences, report cards, and the end of the first quarter.  

I signed up again because I am a glutton for punishment! I have many students who want to try their hand at it.  In fact, they have already signed up through the Young Writer's program and I created a virtual classroom. I have many students that are already planning and getting excited about it.  They have set some ambitious goals!

But with regards to me, this year I am going into it with a plan. Hopefully I will have better results.  I may even cut back on blogging the month of November so I can really focus on NaNoWriMo. We shall see!

So with that said, did anyone else sign up? Let me know your user name and we can be writing buddies. My user name is Chris327; come find me and we can commiserate.

Happy Writing,


  1. I'm definitely participating and, for the first time, I've got a quiet November. My username is cherry_chez.

    Good luck with the writing.

  2. Good luck! While I've never participated, it looks pretty intense.

  4. One day, I will do Nanowrimo.
    Now that I think of it. Maybe I should subscribe this year?

  5. Cheree- I will try to friend you on there! Thanks for the heads up!

    Geekyreads- Thank you!

  6. Neuro- Let me know if you do! I'll friend you on there.

  7. Go you! I'm not a writer so I think it is great so many people sign-up for this! I really hope you get close to 50,000!


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
