National Novel Writing Month

November is National Novel Writing Month.

I've participated in NaNoWriMo before with various degrees of success. This year I want to participate but it will be a little different. I've had this project I've been working on for a while. A book called "120 Ideas for Tiny House Living." This is, of course, based on our experience building and living in our 120 square foot house.

By the letter of the NaNo rules, my little project doesn't count. For one, it is nonfiction. The second is that I have already started it and the way NaNo is supposed to be done is to write something start to finish in 30 days. And it has to be 50,000 words. I've decided that I am going to use November to finish this project even though it doesn't fall under official NaNoWriMo rules.

So, stick with me this November and I may post some teasers over at Life in 120 Square Feet.

Whether you want to simplify your life or downsize your home there is wisdom to be found in the tiny house movement. 

There is a lot to think about when deciding to make a transition to any type of alternative living situation. There are lessons to be learned from these kinds of changes that could revolutionize the way we interact with our environment and the people around us. In this book we will explore 120 ideas for tiny house living – everything from how to build it to how to decorate it. No idea was too big or too small to be considered. 



  1. Awesome! I adore the idea of NaNoWriMo, but I discovered it in early November last year, so I've never considered actually doing it. I can't conceive of writing over 1600 words EVERY day for a month with my schedule! I hope you rock it, even with your rebellious ;D non-fiction, already started project.
