November is almost here, so those of us who are doing NaNoWriMo are getting ready to write like crazy for thirty days to reach our 50,000 word goal. We’ve apologized in advance to our friends and family for immersing ourselves in a fictional world and neglecting things like returning phone calls or buying milk.
We’ll be spending most of our free time this month looking at our notebooks or computer screens, but we’ll still need our friends in the real world and the blogosphere to cheer us on as we race to the finish line. With your support, we can do it.
Here are a few bloggers I know who have decided to take on this crazy challenge:
- Amber of A Day Without Sushi – She blogs about writing, motherhood, and life in general with great wisdom. She’s also a pro at NaNoWriMo and she recently wrote a post offering great advice for those of us who are gearing up.
- Susan of Coming East writes memoir and essay posts with compassion, intelligence and elegance. She has a busy November schedule ahead of her, but she signed up for NaNo anyway.
- Leah of Leah’s Thoughts blogs about everything. Writing, books, recipes, work, family life… she covers it all. Her essays are engaging and her photos are gorgeous.
- Totsymae is an artist and writer who blogs with dry wit about anything from family and relationships to politics and religion. Absolutely nothing is off-limits. Her site features her amazing artwork, thought-provoking essays, and vivid flash fiction.
