We're almost midway through October. It also means we're almost to November. Hitting November means I need to get my butt in gear and start some Christmas shopping. It also means it's almost NaNoWriMo time.

I say every year that I'll take part, but I'm usually already working on a project when it rolls round. This year is no different. 

I love the concept of NaNo. 50,000 words is a huge chunk of manuscript. The community is fabulous. I know plenty of writers who have taken part. And, one day, I'm pretty sure I'll end up giving it a go. But, at the moment, I find setting myself a daily word count target (without the 30 day deadline to hit 50k) is a better fit for me. 

How about you? Are you doing NaNoWriMo this year? 


  1. I'm doing Nano. I find the challenge of writing whether I have something to write or not somehow works for me. I turn off my inner editor and let the words flow. Some of them are pretty awful. And like you said, there is something to be said for the energy around it. Hope you take the plunge sometime.

  2. I've committed to doing it. (Or I should be committed for doing it.) ;o)

    Seriously, though, I've been so busy this year with editing and stuff that I'm looking forward to a whole month where I can write new words without thinking about editing them. I'll worry about editing in January.

  3. I'm in and I'm psyched! Wooot woooot!
