Well, I’m going to do it. I’m going to do NaNoWriMo. It’s on my bucket list to one day finish a novel (not write a novel… been there and done that).
I’ve been writing since I was old enough to write. My favorite projects in school were when I got to put a pencil to paper and let my imagination run wild.
One English teacher in junior high told me I had a gift. I knew I wanted to write and not do anything else. But how is that practical?
I still remember making some of my college friends tear up from a scene in a story that I have yet to finish (I think my mission killed all the romance, fantasy, and whatever else I put into that story).
Am I concerned about having to write 50,000 words in 30 days? Yes. I have so many stories, but never enough steam to plow through and finish.
Do I think I can manage everything I’m supposed to do and still accomplish this? Nope. I think that some things are definitely going to be sacrificed. So I may be posting less frequently. Or more often to avoid writing.
