Guess who has two thumbs and just lost her mind? This girl! (points thumbs at self) Ok so that may not be news to most of you. If you've read at least one of my posts here you know I've always misplaced a bit of my gray matter. However, about an hour ago I took the plunge and signed up for NaNoWrMo!
For those not familiar with this, it's basically writing a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. It's not really to get a quality bestseller cranked out but to get people writing. I'll write everyday (hopefully) without going back and editing, revising or thinking what the heck was I thinking? It's a way to get people to remember what they love, to write. So I have no clue what to write but I have half a month to coming up with a plan. I don't know whether to write something of fiction or whether to work on that autobiography piece of being a bipolar parent. That one might be a bit emotional to work on in one month, especially right before the holidays. My mind is racing like crazy trying to figure out my game plan, my story idea, my plot, my everything. It'll be fun! I decided when I turned 40 this year to stop saying someday. So TODAY I'm pledging myself to this endeavor. I'm going to give it a whirl! (love that saying)
If you're participating this year and looking for 'buddies' my user name is composingcat. (Big surprise, huh?) I'd love a buddy or two. We can all use as much support as we can get. I'll try to keep everyone updated. I have to be held accountable or I'll flake lol I'm off to find some cool mojo word count keeper for the blog because I'm that much of loser lol As for those of you who have participated and completed, I'd love some tips. And for those of you who started it but didn't quite get there or even quit, let me know what went wrong or what you'd advise to do it differently. I"m really excited. I don't think it'll really be worth reading but hey, it's something on my Bucket List so why not, right?
Wish me luck...and my family too...they're going to need it!!!
