Mais quelle mouche m’a piquée??
This is a French expression…
Literally meaning: But what mosquito bit me??
Figuratively meaning: OMG what did I just do??
This is what I’m feeling right now – well part of. Because thanks to my dear friend Aurora, I’ve been tempted to participate in the NaNoWriMo 2011!!!
What is it? Well every year thousands of aspiring writers sign up to the website HERE, adding those who have been taking part in this competition since so many years, are requested to write a whole complete novel of about 175 pages which is 50 000 words from November 1st to November 30th.
This is crazy.
I know, I know, but I’m a restless girl and when I discover the opportunity to do something – any hobby of any kind – I jump on it!
We never know how my life and perceptions will be a year after now – I might change opinions and find something else that writing/blogging (I hope not!)… Anyway we just never know, so I’m not going to wait for 1 year, I’ll do it this year!!! 😀
And I hope I succeed.
I’ve already signed up and read the forums. There’s no going back.
I still have to find ideas! But it’s slowly taking shape… so I don’t worry about that! ^^ and I have a whole ‘Ideas Copybook’ in my drawer so…
50 000 words,
Thousands of participants.
