Are you in for NaNoWriMo?

Hey did you know that November is the National Writing Month (for Americans)? I live in Europe, but it's fine cause if it's for books I can embrace the celebration for me too.

I had the great habit of writing my own stories for a lot of time and I feel that I want that habit back. The last years of my collage life were really hectic (busy living and stu-dying), but now I am a graduate so, boom, I'm back in the game. So yes, I will participate for sure, I signed up today. A lit bit late , but better late than never.

Curious for what I am going to write about? I am between 2 children's books, one about cooperation and team work and another one about how to handle loss. I guess that I have to choose one, today or tomorrow, so that I can start writing.

So, are you in? If you are (please please say I do), write your username in the comments below so that I can see what you chose to write about. Mine username is inwhirlofinspiration (so creative).

Catch you on the flip side guys. xo

(3rd person statements sound so official, love it)

She founded In Whirl of Inspiration, back in 2011 when she was (just) a biology student, in the island of Crete. In Whirl of Inspiration started as a creative and writing outlet for when studying molecules, became too monotonous. Recently, she started writing a children book and a not-so-children's book about the civil war in Greece. She has a soft spot for cheese, elder people, and (her own) jokes, but can't tell any as she ruins them by laughing too early. She enjoys sharing advice for eating healthier, or inspiring people to cover themshelves with plants, color and confetti.

Feel free to email her at, or find her on Instagram and Twitter. (breaking the 3rd person narration to thank you properly)

Thank you so much for reading!
