National Novel Writing Month

Here we go again...I think? Nano started this morning at 12:00 a.m. I didn't. I went to bed still unsure whether I really would participate. Most years I can't wait. A glimmer of a story swirls around in my mind waiting to burst forth. Not this year.

I've started several things and jotted down many ideas. But right now none of them are holding my interest. The last few months have been hard for me. I've had a lot of things of my mind and my focus has been missing in action.

Well, it's time for me to get it together again. I'm not sure how successful I'll be this year, but at least I'll try. There is one paragraph I jotted down several months ago. It just came to me as I woke up one morning. It intrigues me and I want to know the story behind the few words I captured. I feel like this story will be a real departure from anything else I've written, which is odd, since I don't even know what the story is or who it's about. So stay tuned. I'm giving NaNoWriMo a with nothing more than a hope that I can extract something coherent out of my scattered brain. Should be interesting.

I have a vague idea that's slowly taking shape, but I'm wondering if perhaps I like it too much to Nano it, if that makes sense.

Last year was amazing. Empowering. I don't know if there's as much to glean from the experience as last time.

I'm participating, but not as gung-ho as before.

I can't really write as book in a month, not with a job, and kids, and a business to run, but i love the idea of it. Good for you for making a go of it!
