To NaNo, or not to NaNo...

November is nearly here, and it's time to decide whether or not to participate in NaNoWriMo. 

I haven't made my decision yet. I'm so swamped with activities, obligations, and goals that I'm not sure I could pull it off. It's easy to think that ANY goal or writing is good for the soul, but not when it adds additional stress to an already worn out individual. I guess I'll make my final decision this weekend when it begins.

Not sure if you want to participate? Check out what best-selling indie author Glynis Smy says about the practice. And let me know...

Will you be participating in NaNoWriMo this year? Why?

I will be participating. I sat out last year because I was going hot and heavy on a project. This year I'll be working on one of the stories in a series of mine. It underlies the later stories, and I'd outlined it but then got busy. A jump-start from NaNo is just what I need. I missed it last year.

This year I'll be attending the regional kick-off near me.

I am planning to participate again this year. Last year for the first time I was able to complete the 50,000 words. I don't feel quite as ready this year as I did last year. But we'll see how it goes! If you participate, look me up on the website and we can be buddies!

I'm participating. I didn't do it last year, because I was in editing mode instead. This year it happens to fall when I am ready to start another novel, so I'm happy to make use of the momentum and energy it provides. I actually do come up with better drafts when pushed to write it fast, mostly because I can usually remember from one day to the next what I was writing about (but when left to myself, may go for days without writing on a project, and forget about details when I return).
