Diagnosis Pending – It’s either Nano-fever or Wrimo-itis…

2014-Participant-Facebook-ProfileSix months ago I was mostly writing in isolation and then I found NaNoWriMo.

I’ve posted about the journey I made last November often enough, but for those who’re new to the blog – it changed my (writing) life. Literally.

Such was my momentum that I created a co-authored blog with another wrimo, set myself a goal to improve my personal blog (I now have a pretty fantastic community who I cherish), and have made headway in the editing process.

The novel I wrote during NaNoWriMo 2013 – Worlds Apart, is something I continue to be excited about. Perhaps more importantly, I’ve learnt that I’m not in this alone.

So now the dust has settled, it’s time for my next challenge. I’ve just signed up to Camp NaNoWriMo 2014, and though some question my sanity, they can’t dispute my passion or the depths of my enthusiasm.

I’ve agreed, in the month of April, to write a series of novellas under the Worlds Apart series. My target is 36,000 words and I’m optimistic I’ll reach that goal. I will also be continuing to edit the novel and prepare it for publication.

But that’s not all. I’ve volunteered to be a fundraiser (now you’re questioning my sanity). I’m so grateful to nanowrimo that I want to give back. As my motivational levels have just kicked into overdrive, the timing couldn’t be better!

So, why not click here, and check out my fundraising page. I will be updating it over the next couple of weeks and adding features that will, hopefully, encourage people to give.

I’ve already had ideas about how I can meet my fundraising goals. I’ll be baking, making, creating and coaxing from now until I hit the magic number!

033e255b-1969-47fc-8ee1-3f614a4e8980I’ve already started making personalised pocket books, and I’m selling these on Etsy. They come in any size and colour, blank or complete with words. All proceeds will go to NaNoWriMo.

So, as you see, it’s a good kind of fever and you don’t even have to worry about it being contagious!

Thanks for reading, and for agreeing to embark on this new adventure with me.

Until next time
