NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month. Every year, thousands of people sign up to participate in the crazy task of writing 50,000 words in 30 days. Yes. 50,000 words in 30 days. As a stay at home mom, part time substitute teacher, and struggling freelancer (I am new to this), finding time for NaNoWriMo is a huge undertaking. (Honestly, before I had a husband and kids it was a huge undertaking). However, I love it. Most NaNoWriMo participates do.
