National Novel Writing Month … Why not? – Aristen

We write all year. But November is a fun time for writers everywhere—a time when they can join forces and inspire each other through an organized event called NaNoWriMo.

Despite having a half-dozen other half-baked projects in various states of disarray, NaNoWriMo is a fun exercise (cough EXCUSE cough) to start fresh and try something completely different, all with a 50k word count goal.

It’s also convenient, as right now, that OF GOLD AND FIRE is in the hands of our editor, and will be for most of November. Despite doing initial forays into rewrites of Book 2, I like taking time off from that particular universe and meandering in something else. (As long as the Dark Souls 3 DLC doesn’t ruin my life…)

Here’s what we plan on writing, with links to our profiles in the event you are participating and may want to add us as “writing buddies.” Hey, why not? Writing together is so much more fun that writing alone. So why not join us?
