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!

One response to “NaNoWriMo

  1. Of course, I got blindsided by life and work this November, and I got maybe 300 words written. I kind of knew it would happen, given how I did nothing to prepare, and all of a sudden the first day was just kinda there.

    Still, I suspected that this might happen… but that it would qualify as “starting somewhere.” And it does, somehow. Also, now I have a super-terrible first year to live down, which couldn’t hurt either. Next year will be better.
