NaNoWriMo 2013

Today’s the first of November! It marks the start of NaNoWriMo, where aspiring human writers around the world embark on a challenge to write 50 000 words in 30 days.

Mum has signed up and is starting the writing marathon today, along with all the other participants hoping to win at 50 000 words.

We had to have a discussion before I could agree to it. It’s going to take her lots of time which she should be dedicating to me and more importantly I wanted to be sure she wouldn’t steal the iPad, because that’s what I use mostly for blogging. She told me that she will be using the laptop not the iPad and promises to take breaks every half an hour when she’s writing to play with me and give me treats. Then she said something that really clinched it for me…

I’m going to be one of the main characters in her novel! How pawesome is that? She wouldn’t tell me too much about it other than that it’s going to be aimed at younger humans and it’s going to be based in an underwater world with merpeople! She told me the main message will be that we need to save our oceans… I think it sounds interesting so I’ll try and peek as she starts writing and get more details!

Are you taking part in NaNoWriMo? Do you know anyone is? I wish you all the best of luck!

  9. First off, dear brofur, what your mom is going to do is pawsome, and we know you will give her lots and lots of inspiration. Our mom says she had never heard of NaNoWriMo before now. Is it worldwide? Do they have a web-site? She says that it is something she might want to try doing next year. And we know your mom will keep her promise to you to stop for treats and playtime. We love the wide-eyed expression on your face in this photo. Purrs and hugs from your sisfurs and brofur, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  14. Our head peep is participating in NaNoWriMo. This is her second year, and she has been helping with some of the local region’s activities (presenting at a pre-NaNo preparadness workshop, etc.). She is going to owe us big time when November is over, since this is cutting into our commenting time! You’ll see a thermometer at the end of the prescheduled posts on our blog to monitor her word count and keep her accountable. We’re glad to see that other bloggers are taking up the challenge, too!
