Who’s excited? I AM!
I love NaNoWriMo! The whole experience, thousands of people working on their novels at the same time, the atmosphere filled with love of writing, commitment, excitement, and sometimes even some friendly competition if you’re into something like this.
I’m doing it for the third time in a row and I will do my best to make it my third win. Actually, I’m planning to take things further this year and shoot for 60k, not 50k. My Past Me is shaking her head in disbelief, but my Present Me is very excited for the challenge. I know I can write that much. I’ve never done it, but I know I can, it’s just a matter of, well, actually doing it. And if I make it, next year I will shoot even higher. Because NaNo is special. And it makes me want to do crazy things.
(I actually blame Beyond 50k part of the NaNo forum. People there are amazing for my motivation!)
Are any of you doing NaNo? What are you going to write? Please tell me in the comments!
