NaNoWriMo year three

I told myself I wasn’t even going to consider it this year.  I have too much to do.  To much on my plate.  But several people keep talking about it.  I start to feel envious about it.  I want to do it too.

I went through my folder of outlines and ideas.  One in particular was saying, “you know you want to work on me.”  Because I do, and I don’t, but I do. 

Do I give another year a go and then give up half way through because the time just never seems to be available? 

Maybe I should give it a go without officially signing up for it.  That way I don’t feel ‘obligated’ and it turns into a chore.

It is like when I took piano lessons.  Practicing daily was a struggle.  But when I wasn’t taking lessons, I could spend hours at the piano each week.

I have to make a training manual for my unit at work.  Actually, I had to start on it at the end of last week.  I wonder, can I count that?  It’s non-fiction.  It will take me to the end of November to finish the entire thing.  But I’m not sure it will meet the word requirement in the long run.

  1. Yeah, I don’t have time this year either. I’m doing it anyway, but this may be the first year I don’t finish. And this would be year three for me as well.

    • Since I have to do the training manual anyway, I think I’m going to count it even if it comes up short. Why? Just because I can.

      And since I’m going on a 4 day trip, I’ll take my lap top and see if I can’t crank out a lot of writing (fiction) while on the road. Since my roommate is driving, I’ll have two 8 hour blocks of nothing to do anyway. I would think i could get SOMETHING done, at the very least.

  2. I’ll do it if you do it… isn’t that usually what one child tells another right before they do something stupid?

    • Yep. They sometimes add ,dare, double dare, or double dog dare to it and then jump off a bridge. Well, in my town at least. Because the main bridge in town went over the beach and a big, deep hole.
