It's Finally Here! The First Day of NaNo!

Well, last night I had a good time with my friends. I unfortunately had to leave all the fun a little early, but no matter. That gave me an excuse to stay up til midnight and start working on Enchant. By the way, I am writing this at about 9:30 p.m. on Sunday night. 

Tonight, I dressed up as spongebob. I went with my friend (and co-writer on a book we're writing in 2011) Jackie, who's blog you should really check out, as her posts are much better than mine. And several other people, but they don't have awesome writing blogs like me and Jackie.

Anyway, it is the first day of NaNoWriMo! Here are some things that will keep me sane...

  1. The 24 pack of diet coke I bought.
  2. A bag of fresh Halloween candy (plus twenty-five cents from the dude who ran out of candy)
  3. A good book to read when I finish my goal (first one is Wither by Lauren DeStefano, can't wait to read it!)
  4. Jackie, and all the other fellow Wrimos. But especially Jackie. We've promised to call each other after we reach our goals every day and talk each other through the madness.
  5. You guys! Whether you are doing NaNo or not, I know you guys will be great and supportive as usual.
  6. The fact that I know I will not let myself sleep until I have written at least 1,500 words every day. I will aim for 2,000, but I know that will not always be possible so 1,500 is still a good goal.
Anyway, I can't wait to start Enchant. I have a feeling it's going to be my best yet, even though it is going need to be edited with a chainsaw when NaNo is all said and done. 

Lastly, my favorite book series EVER, Secret Circle by LJ Smith is being adapted by the CW and being made into a television show. I blogged about it here.

Good luck to everyone doing NaNo this year, we can do it together!

Almost forgot... you can add me as a writing buddy on NaNo if you want! My username is AlyxBennett


  1. I'm giving NaNoWriMo a shot this year as well. I'm titancia on there (same as on YouTube). I tried to add you but it's going really slow, probably because it's just starting out. I'll get you added eventually! :)

  2. Good luck Alex! I cant wait to start on mine!


Thank you for helping me reach my dreams!
