For the next few Fridays (or as long as I can get away with it), I’ll be wearing one of my NaNoWriMo shirts in an effort to drum up some interest and recruit some NaNoCheerleaders. These are not tiny cheerleaders, by the way. A NaNoCheerleader is just someone who cheers me on while I make my way to 50,000 words in the month of November, which is also known as National Novel Writing Month.

What’s your job? Just remind me that I should be writing and not:

  • blogging
  • facebook-ing
  • tweeting
  • watching TV
  • working late
  • spending excessive time out with friends (I need a little time, come on!)
  • spending excessive time sleeping (I need a little sleep, too!)

In addition, you should also be asking me for my word-count.  Don’t let me forget what my ultimate goal is… and if I hit 50,000 words before November 30th? Encourage me to write some more.

Anyone who signs up (which means adding your name to this post, to my Facebook page, to my Facebook wall or tweeting me a message letting me know of your support) will get two things:

  • one signed Emi Lost & Found postcard (I’ll eventually need your address, but let me worry about that in December)
  • one free download of my new ebook to be released on January 1st

So tell your friends and spread the word!

If you’d like to donate money to the great cause of NaNoWriMo, which is sponsored by the non-profit Office of Letters and Light and promotes literacy around the country (and world), then click on the image above and donate in any amount you choose ($1.00 minimum). This is not required to be a NaNoCheerleader
