Episode 1: Welcome back to NaNoWriMo

Thinking out loud about National Novel Writing Month.  NaNoWriPod begins its second season today. This podcast covers the event where writers try to complete 50,000 words in 30 days. 

Episode 1: Welcome back to NaNoWriMo

This week, Ben and I introduce the goals for this seasonal podcast and re-introduce ourselves. We talk about what happened to last year's work and give a hint about what's to come.

I describe a thirst for completion that will only come with multiple rounds of edits. Ben challenges himself to the full 50,000 words. 

Thanks for following us as we adventure again into the vast uncharted wilderness that we call National Novel Writing Month. As always, we love to hear from listeners. If you want to share your story, leave a comment or find us on the many social media sites that swarm like locusts upon the internet.

You can find the podcast here, on BlackRectangle.net, on iTunes, or on any number of other podcast-providing stations in your sector. Get creative.
