NaNoWriMo Is Calling My Name

Guys, I'm distraught. I want so badly to participate in NaNoWriMo this year but I don't think it is practical for me at this time. I'm doing so much school and work...

But, I'm going to do it anyway.

"Do what?" you ask.

NaNoWriMo. It's the National Novel Writing Month for all daring writers in the world. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel in one month. Trust me, its harder than it sounds. I completed it last year, but it was SO hard.

Anyhow, I'm depressed because this time last year, I had a pretty detailed outline of my novel. But this year, I don't even know where I'm going to begin. So the challenge is going to be much greater. I'm going to keep up my blogging as much as possible, but during NaNo - everything kinda comes to a hault.

Now, I retreat into the dark, cold recesses of NaNo.

*Chuckles* Godspeed, cousin. I'm at a little bit of a similar dilemma myself, but I'll be rooting you onward and upward ^_^ If you ever need to bounce off ideas or something, feel free to nag me as much as you like :P

Hey Ashley!

Thats awesome, I dont really have time or the brains space either, but hey, why not?

If you have time, what is your novel about? And what is your NaNoWriMo username? Good luck to you!
