November is… National Novel Writing Month

At first, I did not want to participate again.

I was going to blow it off.  I usually end up not finding enough time to accomplish anything. So most of November, I agonize over deadlines, word count, not finishing the draft, yada, yada, who needs that?!

This year I plan to work every day of November. Whether it’s writing new chapters, organizing my outline, doing research, proofreading – it doesn’t matter.  As long as I’m making progress toward my goal (finishing the darned thing), I’m going to relax and have fun doing it.  Well, ‘fun’, might be a little optimistic, but the point is to not become a nervous wreck.

I can hear the laughter as my loyal readers, who know me so well, ask themselves, “doesn’t she say that every year?”  You could look that up if you want to. I do say something every year and that’s all I know.

It is into the Second day of NaNo – no additional word count today(yet), but I’m working on my outline to double-check my chapters. Don’t tell anyone but I got lost.  Sheesh.  I need to figure out a couple things and hopefully write tonight.

Not going to do much blog writing in November, although, I may post an occasional teaser on the “The Novel” page…
