So, yes, I’m doing NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) this year and this will be my third attempt. The first time I tried it, 2009, it was a last minute kind of deal and I really had no idea what I was doing. I just started writing. And then I stopped writing shortly thereafter.
Last year I tried again. Having fully committed myself to the whole writing thing, I thought it would be a great challenge and I was excited to see what I could produce. Then I came down with bronchitis. And I stopped writing shortly thereafter.
Well, it is here again and once more I am grabbing the NaNoWriMo bull by the horns. I feel a bit hesitant about the whole thing given 1) my past two experiences, and 2) the fact that I’m going to start a new novel while I work on my current WIP because I feel like it would be cheating to count the words on my current WIP (even though I’m only about 3000 words into it).
Who thinks I’m crazy?
There are lots of other folks participating in NaNoWriMo. To find some new NaNoWriMo friends check out Sommer Leigh’s related Blog Hop. You can also visit Cheekyness at her blog and read herNefarious Plot post. Lots of friends to be had.
Good luck to everyone! And you can find me on NaNoWriMo as wekemash. Hope to see you there!
