Attempting NaNoWriMo 2016 – Week 0

Back in 2014 I was willing to participate of NaNoWriMo and even created my account with a pseudonym, but I chickened out in the last moment because I was overwhelmed with work.

For those who have never heard of, NaNoWriMo means National Novel Writing Month. It’s an annual challenge where writers put together 50,000-word novels from November 1 until the deadline at 11:59pm on November 30. There are no prizes except the contentment and pride of successfully completing the challenge.

I still don’t have defined the genre and theme of my novel, but I chose to write in Portuguese. I am using this year NaNoWriMo to have idea of how I can handle the contest and my time schedule. Next year I plan to write something more serious and intense.

There will be a post every Friday here informing my word count and how I am dealing with the pressure of writing.
