No NaNoWriMo for me this year. I enjoyed it last year and found it a challenging and rewarding experience. Rewarding in the sense of personal accomplishment but also the first 50,000 words of the West Wind. Considering it took me 6 more months to write another 50,000, it truly was a great experience.
Instead, I am going to buckle down and tackle the rewrite of the West Wind. NaNo would just turn into another month long excuse not to get cracking. I have been doing well enough distracting myself with short stories (I have convinced myself it is good for honing my editing skills). I think I need a month of NaNoEditMo!
So for the folks that are going to take take up the challenge, whether for the first time or more, I wish you best of luck. Enjoy and I will see you next year…
I finished the rewrite jsut in time to do NaNo – but then I realized I didn’t have another novel to write just yet. So I’m writing a novel of short stories! Good luck with the rewrite!
