I’ve spent the last hour or so skim reading my MS from a couple of years ago, the one which I won NaNoWriMo 2010 with, and it’s helped me make my decision for this year’s NaNo.
I’m going to do NaNo this year. For a couple of weeks I was in two minds about it, but in the last couple of days I’ve been more resolute about going for it this year.
I said at the start of this year that I wouldn’t give up on things that meant the most to me – eg. writing – and yet it all seems to have fallen by the wayside again. Yesterday I decided to sketch for the first time in two months, and it was such a great release for me. Writing is the same. It’s my escape. But somehow, along the way, I always seem to forget that. I’m really hoping NaNoWriMo will be the thing to bring me to my senses, and help me finish the first draft of Erase.
I’m looking forward to it. I’m right near the home straight for Erase, and I have a lot of loose ends to tie. It will be great to put an end to Lake’s story, although whether it’ll still feel like a standalone novel by the end of November has yet to be seen.
But I will be updating my progress throughout November, hopefully – and that’s a tentative hopefully – at my usual blogging schedule.
Nevertheless, I am looking forward to November, and all the writing that has yet to come.
How are you feeling about NaNo this year?
