I've heard about NaNoWriMo for a while now... you can't be on the internet without hearing about it.
What is NaNoWritMo, you ask?
It stands for National Novel Writing Month and what do ya' know... it starts today.
Since I've graduated from my Masters Program (my friend kindly suggested I start calling it My Fucking Art degree... nice, huh?) I've been feeling a tad bit... lost.
My mind is a mess, I'm physically antsy... and you know what, it's probably because after you finish a degree program you hit a wall where your mind is mush.
Mine sure is.
So I just happened to be clicking around FB this morning and saw a friend's post for NaNoWritMo and made a swift decision to join in on the fun.
Now, I could be bitching and moaning about this hasty decision in a week or so, but who cares. I'm a firm believer in attempting and failing is better than just failing.
My goal is to spend today taking notes and coming up with ideas. I need to find a solid idea and RUN AWAY WITH IT.
I need to make a plan to write for the entire month of November, set goals, exceed my goals, remember why I love writing so much...
More scared than anything, but you know how that goes.
Have you ever done NaNoWritMo (this sucks to write out, just fyi).
