Kickoff Post for NaNoREADMo
In the past seven years, I have participated in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) six times. Six times! It's a rush, I've met great people through it, but eventually I had to just come to terms with the fact that I'm a far better reader than writer. I was starting to not really have fun doing it.
And yet I have a room full of unread books. Before they take over the house, I have turned them into a challenge. Join me. Read mo(re)! National Novel Reading Month has been declared by yours truly!
How to participate:
1. Read. More than usual.
2. Talk, blog, or tweet about it. Write reviews or save them for after the month. Take pictures of your piles, if you want. I know I will.
3. Make lists of what you might read, even if you don't stick to them. (Sorry, this is a requirement. I like lists and therefore I require that you make one. Muahaha.)
4. Comment on this post so I can follow what you're up to. Friend me on GoodReads. Follow me on Twitter. Whatever it takes. I'm now your reading cheerleader, and I'm bringing snacks!
That's about it. Read more. Dedicate time to it. Plan for it. And get through a pile or two!
(Stay tuned for my reading list for NaNoReadMo!)
