NaNoWriMo Is Coming! 10-3-2017

I just realized NaNoWriMo is just around the corner.  Anybody planning to participate?

I have participated the last two years, but have never finished a novel. To be honest, I get so drawn into things in the outside world I freeze on the inside. Last year I was bogged down in the medicine fiasco and the year before my Aunt was in the hospital.

Sadly, I let myself be intimidated.

This year, I am better prepared. I have two unfinished novels from which to choose. Not just two, of course, but two from the previous Novembers.

This doesn’t mean I won’t panic and think either is (or both are) trash, but here’s hoping.

How do you center yourself in order to keep writing?

Ready? Set? Write!

On the day before the start of the National Novel Writing Month,  are you ready?

Just out of curiosity, if you are participating do you:

Plan to work on a current project that just needs editing and polishing?

Use a fully outlined, but not started,  project?

Use one of those ideas that pop into your head at the worse possible time, but you just haven’t had the time to work on it yet?

Start with just one aspect and build from there? Character, plot, villain  etc.

Wade in blind and see what happens?

 

Good luck to all!

“We still hadn’t learned, though, that growing up is all about getting hurt. And then getting over it. You hurt. You recover. You move on. Odds are pretty good you’re just going to get hurt again. But each time, you learn something.” -Jim Butcher
