November 1st is here and that means NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month. As someone who is a short story writer, I often look at my friends writing the long form with some envy. They have their own month and I don’t want to be left out so I tell myself that I will finally write one of those novel ideas I’ve been noodling on for forever. Just when I think I’ve picked one and made a decision, the weight of my backlog of revisions, rewrites, or markets I want to submit to smacks me like a brick. So, I’m doing AlterNaNoWriMo.
The rules of AlterNaNoWriMo are simple:
I think I convinced a couple people to do #alternano with me this weekend, which was awesome and inspiring and deserves a post of its own, once I’ve had a chance to catch my breath.
