  • So the first blog I visited for the A-Z challenge didn’t have a post up (it’s early in the day) and then this, my second site, has a challenge I can’t complete! My first response was, ugh, I’d love to write a book in June, and I am working every day on a book, but June is the worst possible month for me to commit to something…..So….Never mind. I am going to commit to something in June thanks to you. I probably can’t get 50,000 words in, but I can promise myself that even with everything else going on in June, I *will* work on my book every day, at least a little bit.

    Thank you!

    • Rory – you can’t compete, but you will anyway? Ha ha, guess we have some pretty strong powers of motivation then. 🙂

      I totally get that some months are more busy than others, and I’m sorry June’s one of those for you. But I’m happy that you’re going to try it anyway. Even if you don’t make the 50K, if JuNoWriMo can inspire you to get more words written than you would have normally, it’s still a win, right? Good luck!

      • My best friend is finally able to legally marry to love of his life in June, and I’m playing a major role in the wedding, and my kids are off school and I decided to skip signing them up for camps to hang out with them, and my big sister’s turning 40 and graduating from law school, so June’s a good, very lucky busy. 🙂 But I will add writing every day to the deal.


  • Alright. I’m signing up.

    I’ve got a zillion excuses that month (visiting family, enrolling in grad school) but writing doesn’t get done with excuses. It gets done when you sit down and do it, no matter how busy life gets.

    Right now editing a novel I wrote last year– am thinking I’d love to pound out its sequel come June. If not that, there are other ideas in the works…

    thanks for this.

    • Awesome! I’m so glad you’re joining in, Raquel. You are so right about excuses.

      I’m currently editing a novel, too, frantically trying to get it done before June.

      See you in a couple of months! 🙂

  • Usually, I do a very informal MarNoWriMo since there are no major holidays, birthdays, or any other kind of special days and there are 31 days in the month. Feels a bit like cheating, but I rarely only write 50K in a month. However, I’m going to join you! Whoot!
