Happy first day of NaNoWriMo! Your LA MLs want to say hello to all the returning Wrimos and welcome the newbies, we are so happy you could join us this month.
So it’s day one, the day you’ve all been waiting for. Either you’ve been counting down the days for months (*cough cough Alexis*) or you’re more like me, wondering where the time has gone.
Maybe it’s just me, but I think 2017 has been a year of distraction. Personal things, work, school, and general life happenings all seem to intertwine into this impenetrable cage of distraction from the passions of life, which in our case is writing.
November is the time to forget that cage. Or rather, to create a key and unlock it, and step out into the world as a writer. It’s a month to declare that you will, in fact, finish your novel. It’s the 30 days that you will put writing before nearly everything else, because you WANT to. It’s four weeks of finishing your 2K a day before Netflix or homework or hanging out with friends. My first NaNo was when I realized that I really could be a writer, and I hope you have that realization too.
We believe in you. Hope you have a great first week and crush your word counts. It’s the honeymoon period. Enjoy it!
You’ll hear from us soon.
Mia, LA ML, Defeater of Distractions
