Student Snippets

A WINDOW INTO THE DAILY LIFE AND THOUGHTS OF SLIS STUDENTS

Want to spend more time writing this November?

Many people who like to read also like to write. I definitely belong in this group. In fact, every November, I am one of those crazy people who participate in NaNoWriMo.

What is NaNoWriMo you might be asking? NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month. It takes place every November, and it is when people decide to tackle their writing projects. Typically, NaNoWriMoers write 50,000 words in the 30 days of November. That's 1,667 words a day. Okay, so maybe I shouldn't say typically. That's usually what the goal word count is, but I, for one, have only met it once in the five years I've done it. 1,667 words a day doesn't seem overly hard until you get behind a couple days.

I'll let you know how I do this year. Until then, if you're interested in trying the challenge, head on over to Nanowrimo.org and get started. Let me know in the comments if you're participating! I always love to have friends to spur me on towards the goal.

All the Best - Hayley
