NaNoWriMo 2015 | Week 1

I kept going back and forth on whether or not I was going to participate this year in NaNoWriMo. If you don't know what NaNoWriMo is, it's National Novel Writing Month which takes place in the month of November. The goal is to write a total of 50,000 words by the end of the month. It isn't really about writing a complete and finished novel in a month, but more of a very very very rough draft.

I didn't do very well last year, and sort of gave up. I was in school then so it was a little hard balancing work, school, and attempting to write a novel in a month. I thought that this year I'd post weekly updates. I'll start it off a new post at the beginning of the week and then just update it everyday.
