I've always thought it sounded like a good idea. Something fun and hard at the same time. But...I've never done it. I'm somewhat scared that I wouldn't actually get it done. I'd quit early on because I had nothing to say. Know what I mean? Well, I'm doing it this year. I'm just throwing caution to the wind and going for it. I don't know if I'll succeed, but if I'm writing everyday then I'll feel as if I am. Even if I'm not hitting a specific word count.
I've written and scheduled posts for the whole month of November here on The Sweet Bookshelf so that I'm not overly stressed about NaNoWriMo. Here's to a goal of writing the story in my head!
Are you doing NaNoWriMo? What did you do to prepare? Have you got any tips for me? I can use all the help I can get!
**UPDATE** I'm 8 days in and I'm just over 10,000 words. I deleted a couple thousand yesterday. I didn't like where my story was headed. I'm doing some more outlining and plotting to make it a great week.
