National Novel Writing Month

31 10 2013

It kinda scares me. Well, makes me a bit anxious because I want to do it, and I feel like I could do it — if I weren’t a full-time student and working part-time as well. I know the point of NaNoWriMo is to try and finish a novel but I already know that if I don’t finish it, i won’t be very happy. I suppose it will depend on how busy I am and how many excuses I will allow myself if I don’t end up finishing it. I’m sure next year I’ll be able to get down to it more, or even dedicating December as my real NaNoWriMo. Anyway.

If you’re doing NaNoWriMo, find me!

Just do it! I work full time at a brand new job, I have a lot of outside responsibilities, I am going to travel a lot, and so on. But I know this is my chance to throw caution to the wind and just try to win again this year, or at least complete my goal, which is to finish the first draft of my novel. I started a long time ago, and I feel guilty for not doing anything about it. NaNo has such a huge community, we can all do it together! I am really going to push myself, and feeling busy and guilty is normal. That’s part of the fun! We wouldn’t do something we knew was easy. The challenge is the whole point. If you don’t finish, you will have written something anyway, and if you do, it gives you a sense of accomplishment. Good luck!

Thanks for the encouragement! I really appreciate it. What you say makes sense too. I guess I feel like I have high expectations if I get myself into it, especially since I consider myself a writer, but I shouldn’t be so hard on myself, you’re right. Good luck with your writing!
