Gone NaNoing, Be Back in December

Hey, everyone! I never thought that I'd be going on a break at all during my blogging journey, and I am very happy to say that I'll be back soon enough.

This year, I am going to accept the challenge of NaNoWriMo.
"For those of you who don't yet know what NaNo is, I'm talking about national Novel Writing Month, and annual event for aspiring (and published) novelists run through a website and its sisters.
NaNoWriMo is a yearly challenge that pushes writers to write a 50000 word novel in 30 days and nights, starting on November 1st. every year, an average of 300,000+ writers participate in NaNoWriMo and/or its sister site, the Young Writer's Program (or the YWP). the YWP is what I'm participating in for my first year of NaNo so I can adjust my wordcount goal as I learn my capabilities.  The YWP is for young writers under 17 years of age, and the real McCoy (or in favor of my friend, the real Hatfield) is for writers aged 13+.
As this is my first year of NaNoWriMo, I set my YWP goal to be 15,000 words. My last major writing project that I've finished was around 20k and took two months to draft! However, that project was not only collaboration-based, but it was littered with arguing and...well, a lot more arguing on top of it. On my own, I think that I might actually be able to make my goal."
If you were wondering where that quote is from, then I'll tell you straight away. That quote is from the blog where I'll be showcasing my writing and little tidbits of my IRL life for November - DeidreDev's Blog.

The story behind my pen name Deidre S. Devereaux is pretty simple, the main fact being it's the same name as I use to sign my fanfiction, so I'll still be managing Travels over November. Of course, I probably won't be posting as much. However, I do have a lot of scheduled posts for you to read and look over, though I can't say the same about any comments that will come in over November. If anything spectacular or BIG happens, I'll be sure to post about it. If I adjust to the daily wordcount easily (which I'm hoping to be 2,000, but 500 will do.).

....are you out of your mind? Of course I'll be back after NaNo!! A captain's word, mateys!

Keep Traveling!

D.S. Dev
