It’s both nerve wrecking and exciting, but I’m gonna try to write a 50,000+ word novel in a month. That’s just 30 days. Does that sound as crazy to you as it does to me? I can think of tons of reasons I can’t do this. The holidays are coming up, the kids will be home from school half the month, I’m too stressed to write, getting up at 5:00 a.m. to write doesn’t sound appealing, my brain doesn’t work after 10:00 p.m., my muse isn’t returning my calls …
The list goes on and on, but I only need one reason to NaNo: writing is what I do. If I look at writing as my profession, as we should all do whether published or not, there are no excuses good enough to stop me from pursuing this goal. I have an outline ready, a fun cast of characters, and scenes I can’t wait to write.
November will be a crazy month at my house this year. Gonna need to stock up on brownies, Cool Ranch Doritos, and green tea ginger ale.
Do you plan to NaNo? What are you doing to prepare?
