You've probably already seen plenty of other blog posts/tweets about NaNoWriMo so far, so I'm going to skip the details. Basically, I think you should do NaNoWriMo. I think you should do it because hell, someone has to make you write that novel, and there's no better person than yourself. I also think you should do it because you know all those excuses you make about not having time to write? NaNoWriMo is calling bullshit and saying you have plenty of time to write if you fit it in WHENEVER YOU CAN. I think you should do it because it's an excellent writing exercise.
This year, I'm going to write my NaNoWriMo novel while also revising a different novel (possibly two). Also while trying to keep my GPA above 3.7. And studying for finals. And working.
I think you should do NaNoWriMo because I'm doing NaNoWriMo and I like having other people to do NaNoWriMo with!
I think I might bring my wordcount bar back for this, too. And I'll probably do my usual end-of-the-day wordcount posts every day of November.
So there! Obligatory, vague, open-ended NaNoWriMo post! Do with it what you will.
OH YEAH. Who else is doing NaNo? What are your usernames? I am the Unnamed Sultan, and I like adding writing buddies. :D
