Can you hear it?
That’s the sound of anticipation, excitement, and maybe a little bit of fear.
It’s the sound of blank pages moments away from exploding into life.
Of writers all over the world hovering over their keyboards, itching to paint with words the tales inside their minds.
It’s that quiet moment, the calm intro, before everything bursts forth.
NaNoWriMo has loomed before us but its moment has almost arrived. At the gong of midnight, keyboards everywhere will be rattling with the click click click of their users’ fingers, flowing forth the stories that have long awaited their moment to come alive. Coffee shall be consumed in large quantities. Sleep shall be a myth. Everyday duties of life will be shoved into the closet (along with those pesky Inner Editors). There’s a story inside all of us, and right now it demands to be written.
Even now in some parts of the world you can hear the clacking of those keyboards and the churning of those brilliant writer minds firing away.
In two hours my own characters will be breathing upon the pages.
NaNoWriMo 2013 is upon us. And I couldn’t be more excited!
I hope each and every one of you NaNo’ers out there have a delightful NaNo full of thrilling adventures, exhilarating journeys, wondrous surprises, and words that flow as swift and easy as a river.
Happy NaNo ‘13!!!
