In 2014 I participated in NaNoWriMo and I was so happy that I could finally complete a book. I think it was on day 26 that my book was done – all 53.000 words of it. I have only just started to edit the book I wrote back then and a sampe of it has been sent to a publisher to review. Who knows… it might just get published. Of course I hope they see something in it!
When I started getting the first mails about NaNoWriMo 2015, I wasn’t sure whether I would participate. I had some ideas for books, but no time to work those out. Until I re-discovered the book I wrote when I was fourteen. My very first book, my very first story with something erotic in it. It took a couple of days for the idea to form, but once it had, I couldn’t let go of it: I would re-write my youth story for NaNoWriMo 2015!
So, on 2 November (no, I couldn’t start on the first), I started typing. After 4 days I was just over the 8.000 words and going strong. It would be wonderful to NaNoWriMo again! What makes it easier to keep going is having buddies who are writing too, and frequently checking with them how they are doing, encouraging them to keep at it and getting their encouragement in return. I believe that during the month of NaNoWriMo many beautiful stories are born. I hope that mine is one of those that will eventually be out there for everyone to read. After all, isn’t that what every writer wants?
