It’s October, you know what that means?
NaNoWriMo is less than a month away! WHAT??? Seriously? It can't possibly that time of year already.
I know. That was my reaction too. I swear it doesn’t feel like it should be time to think about a month of tremendously crazy writing again, but it is.
I’ve been doing NaNo for about six years now, I believe. I’ve kind of lost count … or brain cells … not sure which. This year, however, I have a wee bit of a dilemma. It’s the second week of October and I’m approximately 10K into another story. Since it’s a project I’m serious about I don’t want to rush through it in order to be done in three weeks, but NaNo’s unofficial rules say the 50,000 words for the challenge are supposed to be from a unique story that starts on November 1.
I’m afraid of putting aside the project I’m working on for an entire month…because that has never gone very well for me in the past. So it looks like I’ll be tackling TWO stories in the month of November (and working a full time job).
So, I’m giving Starbucks ample warning of my expected consumption next month.
Who else is planning on participating in NaNo this year? Anyone find themselves also likely juggling more than one writing project at once next month? If so we should form a support group.
