Ana muses about participating in NaNoWriMo.
I registered for NaNoWriMo this weekend. Partly on a dare, partly because I know I respond to pressure.
I tried the writing challenge several years ago, before I had formed many close friendships with dedicated writers. I fell way short of the 50,000 word goal. I may fall short again, but this November I will have people to answer to and daily exhortations of encouragement. 1667 words per day is the daily average.
I have the story outline and character profiles developed. I have a new laptop I can take to work and on the road. (I have four craft shows to do on weekends in November.) I need to send my internal editor off on a slow boat for Indonesian takeout. I need to get up early and swear off playing Hayday.
I will do my best, though I do need sleep. It will be fun to try.
