Oh boy, and with both feet, too!

Well, on impulse, I just signed up to take part in NaNoWriMo.

What have I done!

I procrastinate and procrastinate about writing all the time and now I have to commit myself to a month of writing daily.

I’ve heard about/read about NaNoWriMo before and always thought it would be an interesting exercise.  But I’ve never taken the plunge.  This morning I read a Freshly Pressed blog by a young woman who is doing this for her third time and something just came over me.

I googled the competition(is it a competition?) and bang!  signed right up.

What will my novel be about?  I’ve got 3 days to figure that out.  Also, a game plan.  And I think I definitely will need one of those.

How many words a day will I write?  When will I write them?  Hmm, seems like I won’t be on my blog space much, but I will try to post from time to time to let anyone who cares to know how I’m doing, (or, simply to let you know I’m still alive.)

Wish me luck!

Have a great weekend everyone.

    Anyone who can pull this off has my admiration and respect. (I’ve been tempted to take the plunge as well…)

      Thank you for dropping by and commenting, very appreciated. I’m a little nervous now that I’ve committed myself. . .

      I haven’t got a single clue what I’m going to write about — better get on it!

    Exciting, Kathy! Sometimes the best projects are done without thinking too much – that way your subconscious can do the bulk of the work..all the best 🙂

      Thanks, Cindy — still don’t have a novel idea — no pun intended!
