NaNoWriMo Sucked Me In
It's November 1st--that means the beginning of NaNoWriMo. Last year I took the plunge for the second year in a row and actually finished my "novel". This "novel" that I haven't looked at since I hit 'save' last November.
I wasn't going to participate this year, since I will be starting almost a week late, but the annoying tug of my inner voice is making me cave. I will be participating in NaNoWriMo this year, after all! It just means I will be frantically typing like a fiend when I get back from my half marathon next week. I plan on pondering my story while I'm wandering around Savannah, camera in hand. I'm hoping to capture some images that will fire up that old imagination and plant an idea in my head. I'd better take a journal along so I can jot down ideas.
Are you going to write a 50,000 word novel this month? You can do it! It's like vomiting up your brain onto the computer. It's a stress-bringer and a stress-reliever all at the same time. It's fun. It's a great way to wake up your brain, fire up your imagination, and prove to yourself that you do have a creative bone in your body! Just do it, already! Go to NaNoWriMo to sign up and get started.
