NaNoWriMo – I’ve signed in.

It is still very early in October, but I’ve watched a few YouTube videos and people seem to prep (quite a lot, it seems to me) during October.

It is a bit much, expecting to reach 50,000 words of something new within 30 days, and people have built up their own rules around it, which is fine by me.

Some people need that push that it seems you may get with NaNoWriMo.

Not me.

I’m not sure what I’m there for, except that I know I want a look.

I found the website a bit all-over-the-place.  It wasn’t geared up for British people, it seemed.  I felt a bit lost in it with all this talk of dollars (to donate, you know).

Well, we’ll see how we get on.  It’s early days.  I’m glad I’ve started now – I need a period of familiarisation – and that isn’t with the writing.

But I notice I’m in emphasis-mode.  Something must be going on in the old brain-box.

  1. Good for you!

    You can use it as a guide, set up your own goals and expectations. I say this because I hate following (stupid) rules but understand that sometimes the rules are there to push you forward. 🙂

    Reminds me to go sign up too… 😉


    1. Someone said that if you refuse to follow the rules you just get sent to the rebels’ room. I don’t know if that is at the camp or what.
      Someone else has said they know people who do it each year – get so far in their novel the first year, go back and do some more . . .
