After a ton of debate, I have decided to get ready and gear myself up for NaNoWriMo this year. Eek! I had never heard of this event until I began following blogs several months ago in January. I'm totally freaking out; this will be the biggest step yet I've taken towards becoming a writer. I'm doing my best to push my negative thoughts away and am saving all blog posts that give advice on writing into a separate folder simply titled "NaNoWriMo." (I know what you're thinking...how did she come up with that??? lol).
I'm terrified of letting you know this and then not following through with the challenge. My mind went back and forth between whether I would even participate let alone announce it in public. Ultimately, I just decided to suck it up and do both. You know what I wish I had right now? A copy of Stephen King's On Writing. The crazy thing is that I did have one but I think I must've sold it or something some time ago. I'll just have to go pick it up at the library--that is, after I pay my humongous fines.
Are you planning on participating in NaNoWriMo this year?
