It’s that time of year folks!  Time to get ready for National Novel Writing Month.

If you don’t know what National Novel Writing Month is, I suggest you look it up.  One whole month of a lot, and I mean a LOT, of writing.  50,000 words in the month of November.  It’s insane.  And it’s glorious.

This will be my fourth time participating.  I’ve won the other three times (I’m a crazy person.  If I set a goal for myself, I do NOT give it up), and it’s always a terrifying start.  I mean, 50,000 words?  Who says I can even write 5?

It can be a slog too.  There are days when I don’t feel like writing.  When everything I put down on the page I feel awful about.  It almost hurts to write.  But I do it.

Because at the end, I have an almost shiny new novel.  And bragging rights.

Of course, I always take the month of October to prepare (and last year, I was preparing through September as well).  I like to jump right in on November 1, get as much done as possible so that I can just write for those thirty days.

I’ve done very little planning so far.  I guess I should get started, huh?

Does anyone else do NaNoWriMo?
