NaNo Anyone?


I never thought I would ever seriously consider doing NaNo but this year I’m seriously thinking about it. Today I went to a plot/planning event at a local eatery and met some interesting people. Fellow writers. The Leader is doing his 10th NaNo. He seemed like a sane person. 🙂 There was another writer who had done NaNo at least five times and two other writers just like me who hadn’t done NaNo.

Right now as I sit with my laptop I’m still not sure if I will attempt to write my next first draft in the month of November. I guess I’ll know by October 31st.

Have you done NaNo and lived to tell about it? What was it like? How did you survive?

  1. DO IT! Its insane, stressful, difficult, mentally stressful but totally worth it. Its about 1667 words a day. I have tried 3 or 4 times, and won once. But the reality was, I had more writing done by the end of the month than I would have had without it. So, go for it! I plan to do it this year. I have to finish a manuscript, about 40,000 words (more or less) and a new one to start so i plan to do it. Join the insanity!

  2. Yeah, 1667 words a day. We all got a little booklet that mapped out the word count totals as the month goes on. What the heck! It’s only for one month. I’m in.

  3. Good luck! I’m a NaNo veteran at this point, and I’ve signed up to be a local ML for the first time this year.
