I almost did not. Here I was with an actual story idea (for once), even a title (gasp) and at the last minute I hesitated. I ran onto an old file titled "goals for 2014". My main goal was to drag those 140 WIP into the daylight and get them published. And while I made a lot of progress on that front - I've been bogged down for several months by various distractions and demands on my time. Maybe I ought to spend November finishing the editing on a former Nano novel, rather than adding a new member to the WIP pile.
In the end, I discussed it with the husband, and he rather strongly supported the idea of leaping into Nanowrimo yet again. He pointed out that I enjoy it (I do), and it gives my writing a real shot in the arm (it does), and it gives me the courage for one whole month to say - "NO, I need to be getting some writing done". And then events conspired to give me the first eleven days of November almost entirely free of other obligations. I can hardly ignore that, eh?
So I am off to Nanowrimo again. My user name is Webitchtress. Oddly enough they show me participating only 3 years - which I know is incorrect. I have more than three Nano-novels to show for it. Weird. Anyhow - see you there!
