NaNoWriMo

How DO you pronounce that???

 I decided last year to take part in NaNoWriMo, but I forgot so this year I’m determined to get started on the 1st of November.  My only problem now is coming up with some ideas.  I was going to blog about my progress on my other blog Bebo Author, – which is playing up a lot lately since I decided to try out a custom domain – but why clog up that when I could do it here 🙂

 I love to write, I have a lot of stuff in my head and the easiest way to get it out is to write it down but I have the very bad habit of procrastinating and putting it off for another day.  I’m hoping that being forced to write 1500 or 1600 words a day will discipline me to actually get things done in the future.  I have a lot of half finished stories because I was too lazy to type them up then forgot key facts and was too lazy to go back and read it all over to make sure I had my details right. 

 One story in particular is very strong in my head (I have the whole lot of it worked out, I just need to type up the second half of it) but I can’t use that for NaNoWriMo because  you have to start from scratch.  That book was aimed at young adults (think Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight minus the vampires) and that just fell into place so maybe thats the type of thing I should try again.

If anyone is taking part, it’s starting in about 4 days so I’ll see you there 🙂
