It's official.

I'm insane.

I need a little nudge to jump start my new novel, and the energy of NaNo is so infectious. I did it two years ago, and wrote 50,000 words of cuh-rap. But. I went into that one 100% pantsing. This time, I'm going in with a different attitude. And a beat sheet. 

For me, any number of words I write will be a victory. I'm going to dub this my own personal NaNoJuStaMo. National Novel Jump Start Month.

Anyone else NaNo-ing?

  2. How do you say it? Squeeee?! I'm so excited about this! The reason I'm excited? You're doing it and not me. I will live vicariously through you, so I expect daily updates on the number of words you have written.

  3. Oh, good luck! I've done NaNo for the past 4 years, but I'm not this year.

  4. Oh, I'm definitely doing it this year, and I'm also heading into it with a plot (unlike the previous years).

  5. Hi Karen! I followed you over here from Mother. Write. Repeat. Thanks for the comment!

    I am doing Nano. First time. Super excited. I should probably start thinking about what I want to write. :)

  6. Hi Karen! Found you on Mother.Write - good for you! I'm going to attempt NaNo for the first time this year, so if you'd like another writing net-friend, feel free to find me on the NaNo site or my blog!

  7. Don't know why I didn't try it your style. I wish I had time to do it. For now I'm in faithful reviso mode. Maybe next year.
