We're now six days away from NaNoWriMo http://www.nanowrimo.org/ I'm not participating. There's way too much going on in the month of November for me to even think about it. Like my trip to Portland for BizzaroCon http://bizarrocon.wordpress.com/ (Sqwee!) But I'm always interested in watching the progress of the writers who take part in it. I've had one person say they were going to attempt it again.
I'm sure there are a few people scratching their heads right now and thinking, What the heck is NaNowhat'sitcalled?
NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. It's the month of November. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel within the 30 days of November.
I've never signed up for it or attempted it. I don't do well under time restrictions. Also, I think the only way I would be able to finish it is if I wrote an outline first. I never do an outline and it would be something new for me. But since NaNo has been brought up I've been kicking around some ideas for next year.
Right now I'm writing something and I don't want to abandon it to start something new. And there's the trip out to Portland. This year would be a bad time for me to attempt it.
