NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writers Month) has been around long enough now that many of you have probably heard about it. It’s a month in which writers are challenged to write 50,000 words in 30 days – a hefty feat. While accomplishing the 50K is one goal, it’s not the only goal. For many, the month is simply a kick-start to writing, or a motivation to get back into a novel one’s had on the shelf. The idea is to write, write, write, without editing, just to get the creative juices going, to build momentum on one’s dream, to begin.
But what if you’re not a writer?
I propose a new challenge: FoYoDreaMo, or Follow Your Dreams Month. What is something you’ve been wanting to do with your life? What is a goal you have, or even just something you’ve been thinking you might like to try? Thirty days, do you have it in you?
If you do, then I declare November to be your month. Start tomorrow, November 1. For thirty days, follow your dream. What do you have to lose?
Report back! See you in thirty days!
