Yep, it's all about the NaNoWriMo :) With things so crazy with the bake sale at work and trying to maintain life around this place, I believe I'm insane for even thinking about doing this... oh wait, we all know I live on the verge of insanity as it is LOL.
I've decided Unfinished Business is the NaNoWriMo project this year. Of course, I have been letting things stew on this one for a little while, but I'm so excited to just really focus on writing a novel and this one is going to be a fun write.
My writer friends and I have come up with a few ways to help one another through this long exhausting month ahead. With writing sprints, checking in on each other, meeting up for write ins. Yes, the month ahead will have to be skillfully balanced and there's only one day left to mentally prepare for what is yet to be :)
Am I ready??? Not in the least bit. There really is no real preparing for what is to come. NaNoWriMo is the time of the year where writers go even more insane than they are normally. Which is really saying something, because we live in our own worlds so often sometimes the real world is foreign to us :)
I've been thinking over the muse aspect of writing these last couple of days and I believe I am ready to let things just run wild and see where the muse takes me once again. It's a hard thing to do when you like to be in control of things, but writing is one area of my life where I am not in the driver seat, but my characters are, and that is a hard pill to swallow sometimes :) But, if I'm going to get back to writing like I used to, then I need to bite the bullet and just start doing it with the passion I once had while writing. And what better way than to go full blown into NaNoWriMo :)
Well for all of you doing NaNoWriMo this year, good luck!!! I hope you find your muse and the words just flow.
Everyone have a lovely night!!!
Blessings to all!!!
