NaNoWriMo

Okay guys, I am going to try something similar to “How I Met Your Mother”. I kinda like the way how every episode begins.

Year 2023:
‘Kids, the November of 2013 was the best Novembers of my entire life. My boyfriend at that time Greg broke up with me on the 25th of October exactly at 10:30 pm through a text message.
I was devastated.
So I did what I usually do when a girl breaks up with me.
I started writing a story about our relationship. I was sharing the first chapter to all my friends via facebook.’
“Hey I just read your prologue… Its nice…” the curly haired guy next to my locker told me.
I just murmured a Thank you and closed my locker with a bang indicating him that the conversation ended there.
“You should try NaNoWriMo…”
“Nano what?” I asked him.
“It’s more of a challenge. You gotta finish a fifty thousand word novel in a month. Give it a try…” he said before walking away.

‘That had my attention.
I signed up for this challenge and found that there was a facebook group for it where people from the same region gather for this challenge.
Joining that group was the best decision I had taken up until then.
I was introduced to a whole new world. A world where I met people who were as crazy as me, people who were too philosophical to be true, who had gone through so much in life and still put on a smile making everyone else smile.
I did finish my novel that November.
And that is where I met all your aunts and uncles…’

@@@@
I would probably tell this story to my kids as well. Thanks to NaNoWriMo, I got back my confidence and my passion for writing. Now thanks to A to Z challenge, I am getting better with my short stories as well.

  1. I planned on joining Nanowrimo last year; even made my account on it but I failed to start my novel because school and extracurricular activities kept on piling up. 😦 The same goes with Camp Nanowrimo this summer. 😦 Hope I can finally join/participate next time. 🙂 So I can share a story the same as yours. haha
