Writing Projects for November
November is buzzing with creativity among writers, bloggers, and in social media sharing as well; I want to take a beat to discuss a few of the exciting projects I know to be converging this month.
“NaNoWriMo” or National Novel Writing Month just kicked off! Writers have been preparing, and now the task is at hand to compile a 50,000 page book in 30 days! Can you imagine the focus, commitment and creativity that requires? For anyone who is in the midst of writing a novel this month, I wish you the very best experience! If you are participating in NaNoWriMo or have done it in years past, please comment and let us know what it was like for you.
In the blogosphere, November is known as NaBloPoMo. Every day of the month, many bloggers will update their blogs daily instead of weekly or even monthly. Keeping up daily interesting content with images, links, and maintaining visitor interaction is quite a challenge! Please support your favorite blogs during the month of November.
Gratitude writing challenges are popular with writers as well as on social media to celebrate Thanksgiving #NaNoPoblano. Whether it’s November or any day of the year, I think any project that encourages one to practice thankfulness is positive. Do you believe gratitude challenges create more overall gratitude year ‘round? Are you participating in a grateful challenge this month?
In my social networking community and blogroll, November is Complex Regional Pain Syndrome/RSD Awareness Month. Many of my Chronic Pain friends are taking part in daily photo challenges, sharing daily facts and writing about their personal journeys with CRPS. Today, November 2nd is Color the World Orange day where we are wearing orange in support of the estimated 5 million suffering in debilitating daily pain.
I am inviting anyone with CRPS/RSD to email me at email@example.com to share an aspect of your personal story. All of the CRPS stories shared during this month will be linked under the category RSD/CRPS in my categories dropdown section. Even though I am raising awareness for one illness in particular this month, I hope you will find the overall messages will be encouraging and inspiring.
There are other important events in November like: Cancer Awareness Month (MoVember), Epilepsy Awareness, Alzheimer’s Awareness, and National Caregiver’s Awareness Month; November 13th is Caregiver Appreciation Day.
Whether you are a writer, a patient advocate, showing your gratitude this month, or trying to educate others on something you care about, I wish you: Passion, Growth, Gratitude, and Perseverance.
If you are participating in a writing challenge or an artistic group project this month that I did not mention, please do share in the comments section!

I know a couple of bloggers that did “NaNoWriMo” and I know what type of discipline they had to impose to make that deadline. I have to admit that would be a no-go for me. I like to write and it is enjoyable but I do not want to force myself to write. No fun.
I have a question for you. Feel free to decline as it is such short notice and I apologize for that.
November is Caregiver Awareness Month, and as of last year, on this page and in my circle, November 13th is “Caregiver Appreciation Day”. If you pull up November last year on my page, you’ll see a couple posts leading up to it and on the day of.
I was wondering if you would be willing to write something for my blog indicative of your caregiving experience- both as a husband and as a caretaker to a loved one with ongoing health conditions. It could be a day in the life or whatever comes naturally to you.
If you had an audience of spouses who had similar needs as yours, what would you want them to know?
Let me know what you think.
My email is abodyofhope@inbox
I hope your wife is doing as well as possible with her recovery.

I feel the same way, Vic. It’s the same reason I have decided not to blog every day in November. I am just now trying to get back into blogging more regularly, and I don’t want all the fun sucked out of it. Like you said, it should be enjoyable.
