convincing idea took place yesterday.
the fears and wondering if i'm insane began today.
the writing craziness starts tomorrow.
Well, I'm scared to death and all signed up to be a participant in this years
craziness NaNoWriMo. I've always had a few novel ideas brewing in my mind, but something usually keeps me from catapulting myself from the writer's safe secure and jumping head long into novel writing abandon.
Ultimately that's what I hope NaNoWriMo will have me accomplish, a month of writer's abandon. I long to be the wordsmith and dreamer who dared to be bold enough to learn discipline and challenged herself along the way. And even though I'm really scared and doubting that I'll reach the 50,000 word mark (what with all I have going on this month) I am going to try to be more disciplined nevertheless.
I am going to write long and hard and abandoned. This is the start...
Did I mention that I chose to write something that I will be completely pantsing? Yes, I am. While I have my character's in my head somewhat already and also a mind that is currently equipped with a few unique ideas I have NO plot outline whatsoever. Crazy. I know.
Honestly, I just wanna see what I can do with the story glimpses in my mind and the time that has been given to me.
I have a few questions for you. 1) Are you participating in NaNoWriMo this year? 2) If this is your first year are you as nervous and scared as me about this monumental task that lies before us? 3) What happens if I don't finish my 50K word in-the-works-novel? Will they set the NaNoWriMo Police on me? (I surely hope not!)
Oh, there's one last thing before I let the self inflicted chaos consume me....
Would you like to be writing buddies? If you are a fellow NaNoWriMo writer this year look me up, okay?
