NaNoWriMo: This year's plan

So this year I'm going to be a NaNoWriMo Rebel. Instead of writing fifty thousand words of a novel, I plan to write and post fifty thousand words to this blog.

Yes, it's madness. I rather doubt that I'll actually get there. But it seems to fit my current writing goals more than the traditional NaNoWriMo. To me, NaNoWriMo is mainly an exercise in poking perfectionism in the eye. And my perfectionism problem isn't at all with what I write I private, but instead for what I write and post. So that's the place to attack it.

  1. Sounds like a plan to me. I am a fan of your writing no matter what the subject. I just like it that you write!

  2. Madness indeed, but I'm anxiously awaiting the results. :)

    Go forth and conquer!

  3. Thank you, Christine! I do appreciate how you make me feel appreciated. :)

  4. Yo, Mals! Madness! Lots of madness!

  5. How's it going??

    Mine SUCKS. Total suckage. Big giant vacuum.

  6. Badly. Not well. I'm not sure if I'm uninspired or just tired - a dragging-on-forever cold, and NaNoWriMo, and a lot of work stuff, all hit at once. I don't seem to have the mental or physical energy to write. Grumble.
