I wasn’t going to participate in NaNoWriMo this year, because (1) I have enough challenges right now with W1S1 (October story subbed a few days ago - yay!) and the now-almost-impossible Off the Shelf Challenge (seriously, I am sooooo laughably behind on that list!) and (2) I’m not sure my current WIP is something that should be written quickly – there’s still a lot of plot twisting and world building to figure out, and I hate rushing into drafting and ending up with yet another frustrating mess-uscript. But the story won't be written at all if I never move from planning to ACTUAL WRITING, and I was feeling in desperate need of a jumpstart. So I
gave into peer pressure and my addiction to progress
bars and pep talks and jumped on the NaNoWriMo bandwagon for the fourth time.
And you know what? I’m ridiculously excited about it.
|Newly painted office: ready! Writing travel mug from my awesome former boss: ready! Inspiration image board: ready! Plot board: um, well, at least there are several post-its and a bunch of questions on it. That's more than I've had any other year...|
NaNoWriMo is usually a pretty sparse blogging time, but I’ll try to post a few impressions from the speed-writing trenches to make up for how little I’ve been around here in the past two months. And of course I'll grab a progress bar for the blog because I'm addicted to such things.
Who else is WriMoing with me? How’s it going so far? I’m "veryhungrybookworm" if you want to find and friend me. (Assuming the site isn’t overrun and spitting out 503 errors again, anyway. The first day always seems to be crazy that way.)
