Get into Action with NaNoWriMo! November 4th, 2010

Marcia Smart Ph.D.

My book is now published!  Yeah!!! Now the work really begins J))

I recently participated in a Book Extravaganza and was blown away by the vast amount of people who wanted to write! I am not referring to those of us who are authors, but to the huge number of people who visited my booth and shared their intense desire to write.

The conversation usually began with “I wish I could do what you did…” I met with a lot of people who had stories to tell, poems to share and facts to articulate. As an author, I was very inspired by the deep level of passion I saw as they shared their dreams with me.

So what’s the hold up? “I don’t have the time.” I am too busy.” “Too many things going on.”  “I do not have the money.” Those were the majority of the responses. Do you fall into this category? Then you must look into National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo! There are forums, a young writers section and there’s even an upcoming write-a-thon!  Check out the website at It is a fun way to get into action and begin writing.

Have you dealt with similar situations? How did you overcome them? What helped? Share your comments in the section below.
