It starts tomorrow. I can hardly believe it. In less than 6 hours (my time) National Novel Writing Month will have officially begun. As it approaches I am beginning to wonder what on earth I was thinking. I am still totally psyched about it, but then I think about the 33 papers I have to grade, the in-class presentation on Wednesday, the 15 and 20 page papers I have to do research for and write and can only come to one conclusion:
I am insane.
But that's okay. I mean, most writers are, right?
I tried last year, but didn't even come close.
I am going to do my best to win, but honestly? I doubt I'll finish this year either.
But that's not the point, now is it? The point is to write. Right now I'm not writing any fiction except for the occasional flash fiction piece for a contest. So if I only write 10,000 words, that's 10,000 more than I would have written without NaNo. If I only write 2,000 words, that's 2,000 more than I would have written without NaNo.
Any writing is good, right? Right!
so if you are a little crazy, or want to just encourage yourself to write a little more than you are now, join in! Click this button
You won't see many posts of substance this month, but my goal is to post my word accomplishments here every night so I am accountable to y'all (and you don't even have to do anything!)
Now I'm off it chill and rest up for that first 1667 words!
