NaNoWriMo??? What is that?

October 28, 2011

Just popping in to say hi!

I’ve been slacking in both the craft and writing departments over the last few months, but it has been nice to take a break from everything! Although, in just a few days, I will be partaking in my very first National Novel Writer’s Month or NaNoWriMo challenge.

For anyone who is unfamiliar with NaNoWriMo, like I was a month ago, the goal of NaNo is to write a 50,000 word (175 page) novel in a month. Yikes! Although I am completely terrified at the idea, I am ready to take the challenge and finally write my mystery novel.

If you are interested in my NaNo progress, I’ll be posting updates on my writing blog as well as Tweeting about it on Twitter as Melissawriting.

In blog news, I have been working on some changes and additions, including some super cute social media buttons designed by Moxie Tonic. They are on the top, right sidebar above the picture of me and Drusilla. I still have a lot of work to do before it is all done, but at least it is on its way.

And have y’all checked out the site, Pinterest? Oh my goodness. It is my new favorite place to hang out and waste time. 🙂 I’ve set up an account too, so if you’d like to follow please do. You can click on the “p” teal, social media button to be taken to my account.

I will also be making some changes to my Facebook and Twitter pages. I want to become more active on both of those accounts, so stay tuned for the revamped pages.

Lastly, I will be hosting another craft-a-long in January! This one will not only help you destash, but will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside! I’m excited, and I’m sure you will be too.

That is it for now. I hope y’all enjoy the rest of the fall. Christmas is just around the corner. Double Yikes!!!
