I decided to sign up for NaNoWriMo yesterday.
For several years during grad school, I was jealous of all the people who had time to participate. Now, I’m kind of overwhelmed. I don’t even have an idea!
But that’s the beauty of NaNoWriMo — it’s one of the few creative projects where you are encouraged to produce sheer quantity, and not worry about quality. So I am planning to have the “need an idea” question in the back of my mind until Nov. 1, no pressure or anything. And then I am just gonna dive in blindly with whatever I have, and see where it takes me.
Updates on my progress will be posted here… and I’ll see about excerpts when I get to that point.
Anyone else nano-ing? Let me know, so we can commiserate!
