NoMoSlackMo- No More Slacking Month

WELCOME TO NoMoSlackMo! No More Slacking Month! November's second chance cousin.

Maybe those 50,000 words for your New York Times Best Seller were just out of your grasp this year. Here's your chance to try again, on a smaller scale. On a more personally accountable scale. And a lot more fun scale.

See the brains behind this operation are Kimi @ So Many Kids So Little Time and Melissa @ Mommy is in the Bathroom. They are slackers just like you. They gave up on their novel in November, ashamed and angry for letting themselves down.

But as luck would have it, they found each other through blogging. And after a wild drunken night of nothing more than a comment or two, these two complete strangers made this little baby- NoMoSlackMo.

Please, they are not fit to do this on their own. Join them. Help them raise and nurture little NoMoSlackMo.

If you are interested in participating here's the low down-

  • Writing takes place from January 1, 2010 to January 31, 2010
  • Goal is to reach 50,000 words by midnight on January 31, 2010
  • You don't have to start from scratch. The point is to finish what you slacked off on in November.
  • You can start from scratch if ya want.

Anyone who wants to participate will become an author on this blog with the ability to post whatever they want about their NoMo project, writing, avoiding writing, writing prompts, etc.

Just sign up as a follower and we'll email you to join our little Slacker family.
*Please be sure to leave us a comment so we can easily have your email address to add you as a blog author! Plus we want to say Hi! and Thank you! :)

More details to come as January becomes closer.

Please pass this on to whoever you think may have slacked off or has an interest to write a novel in the month January!
