So yes, I have thought about writing a novel.  And I have virtually completed a book of some kind in this blog of mine over the past 3 months.  But what about the world of serious writing?

Writing class did some very important things for me – it made me realize that I love this stuff!  I’m still not sure if I’m good at it but that’s only marginally important.  If I love it I should do it no?

Enter NaNoWriMo.  A competition to write 50,000 words before the end of November, National Novel Writing Month.  All I’d have to do to be a winner is write.  And I’d have to start today.

But then doubt sets in – I’m exhausted.  I have a week’s vacation, should I be busting myself over this?  My computer needs to be replaced before I can expect to do much more than social network on it.  There’s a full plate of obligations set before me and I have no idea how I’m going to meet it.

So NaNoWriMo… I will think on you for one more day.  By tomorrow I’ll know if I’m crazy enough to try it or not.

Mind you… it’s only 1,666 a day… 1,724 if I start tomorrow…

What do you think?

  1. Be patient and it will come to you. I think you should go for it, why not? You can write and you should. But the decision is yours you know your own strength. Don’t let the fear chase you away.

  2. Neat concept – you even get a group of published authors to cheer you on (via email, so its less intrusive of your peaceful writing process..) If you love it and think there’s more to discover with the Serious stuff 😉 , i say GO for it!
