I'm doing NaNoWriMo again this year. I just decided this about an hour ago.
I'm a glutton for punishment.
The timing for it is right, though. That was a major factor in my decision. I just completed a second draft of a novel I'm working on and need to let it "cool off" AND I need to work on doing a "white paper" draft of this other novel.
Yes, there are a lot of novels flying around. Whatever.
Doing NaNoWriMo is a guaranteed way to get a first draft or "white paper" draft done. It's punishing, exhausting, and an emotional roller coaster ride but still worthwhile.
This will be my fourth one. And, yeah, I'm going to make 50,000 words in 30 days just like I did THREE TIMES BEFORE. It'll be a pain, a slog, and all kinds of euphoria.
Definitely worth my time.
November is coming up in less than 2 hours. Wish me luck.
