You may have never heard of NaNoWriMo before. It stands for National Novel Writing Month and the goal is to write 50,000 words between November 1st and November 30th. Yes, I am telling you about it too late or too early depending on how you want to look at it. I participated this year, but I started on the 4th because I forgot. That plus not being consistent lead to my novel only hitting 28,109 words, but I’m happy. The longest novel I ever wrote was 21,000 words when I was fourteen. It was my pride and joy, I worked on it endlessly. Then my MS Dos computer died taking my novel with it. Yes, it still hurts.

My point in all of this is that December has just started and soon it will be 2020. I want to encourage you to choose a day and for thirty days do something that has meaning for you. For me, it is still NaNoWriMo. My novel means a lot to me and I feel the story must be told, so that is my focus. Starting today (December 1st) I am giving myself until the 31st at 11:59pm to complete my first draft.

Your goal doesn’t have to be writing. It can be something else creative that you enjoy or it can be working on an area of your life that needs improvement. Tell me what you’re going to do in comments, I’ll hold you accountable as you hold me accountable. Thank you for visiting the Berry Cottage today!
