I decided–on a complete whim–to try my feeble hand at NaNoWriMo. And it’s officially clear I have no idea what is going on. I really wanted to work on the first part of a novel/series that I have cooking, but I already have two chapters written and I’m fairly certain that’s considered cheating. So I went through the old blog and resurrected a character I used in one post and really liked. If nothing else, I get to toy with him for a month and/or 50k words.
To anyone else participating in NaNo–best of luck! And if you aren’t doing the official NaNo thing, I suggest just setting a personal goal to write X amount of words a day–whether it’s 100 or 10,000. I know from personal experience how much it helps!
I (almost) wish I could say that I’ll disappear completely from the blog this month, but I cant sit and write one thing for an entire day without going crazy—not the good writer crazy, either.
