National Novel Writing Month is almost upon us. This year November had the good sense to begin on a Saturday so all the eager novelists can get off to a flying start. I, unfortunately, will not be among them. I have a soft spot for NaNoWriMo, which gave me 50K-plus words on my first (and much loved) novel, The Changeling, in 2003. Since then, I have been too busy having babies, being pregnant, or dealing with the unpredictable sleeping patterns of newborns to take another stab at it. Next year…
Paperback Writer has compiled a great list of tips and links for NaNo-ers.
Who is participating in the novel-writing madness this year?
Hee — the advice in that link made me smile! Thanks for that!
And I’m one of the fools nano’ing again this year.
I would LOVE to NaNo again, but I can’t trust the baby to sleep when I need him to so I can write. This last week, for instance, has been a complete wash in writing terms.
I would like to, especially with all the posts that people are making about NaNo this year–very inspiring–alas, it just isn’t right for me now. :-/
yeah, i’m a little bummed to be left out (by choice) this year–again.
maybe next year. 😀
