The Countdown Begins!

T-30 and counting! National Novel Writing Month is just around the corner. The 2012 NaNoWriMo begins on November 1. They've updated the site and added some new features and today it officially opened to everyone.

As ML I was able to get in and see the site the day before and it was so exciting. Everything is just looks really nice. They got rid of all that red ink!  The don't have the forums up yet but I suspect in the next few weeks other things will come online.

The web badges are posted and they are just so cool. Every year you get a new one to show you're participating, another when you win. I'll be adding this one to the bottom of my  page where all the others reside. I hope to get a winner's badge by the end of November.

I love doing NaNo and since becoming an Municipal Liaison, it has been even more exciting. I get to add my second ML badge to my wall. I have to say that I like my first badge best. That being said, there is a lot to do. I have to plan my Kick off meeting and get the NaNo calendar set up with write-ins. That's a juggling act.

From this point on, the blog will probably reflect a flurry of activity and ultimate chaos. Come November 1 it will be insanity.

Note: To see all my NaNo badges, check at the bottom of the home page.


  1. Since I'm new to your site, I'm not familiar with this, but am interested to see what it's all about!

  2. Thanks for introducing me to NANO - Last year was a disaster due to David's crisis, and I'm not certain about this year. Our visit to UTS Thursday may set some standards for me. As usual, I'll 'lurk'!!

  3. Oh Terri! You're in for some interesting reading! LOL, here is the website. The short version: +300,000 people write 50,000 words in 30 days.

    1. Ironic, that you give the short version.. in just a few short weeks, you'll be adding every adjective and adverb known to man!

  4. Thank goodness it's not a christmas countdown! Good luck with all the prep stuff in your liason role.

  5. Gosh, it has come around again so quickly. I hope you get a lot of enjoyment from it this year.
